Green Peppercorn and Shallot Mustard

Green Peppercorn and Shallot Mustard 8.000
May 23, 2007

Slightly softer in texture and milder in flavor than black peppercorns, green peppercorns add a nice, crunchy edge to this mustard. You can lower the amount or omit them if you're not a big pepper fan. This can refrigerated for up to 3 days.

  • 1 cup whole-grain mustard
