Dijon mustard is a traditional French mustard, hailing from the town of… you guessed it: Dijon! The town is located in the Burgundy region of the country. First used in the 1330s by King Philip VI, the mustard was originally prepared with mustard seeds and verjus, the juice of unripe grapes. The modern version of the condiment is now produced with white wine, or a mixture of water, vinegar and salt, to replace the original use of verjus. It is interesting to discover that 80 percent of the mustard seeds used in the production of the contemporary Dijon mustard come from Canada. in 1937, a decree ruled that the term “Dijon mustard” can be used as a generic designation and has no link to a specific terroir. There is, however, a “moutard de Bourgogne” designation, which would require the mustard seeds to be produced in the Burgundy region of France. Interesting stuff!
