Basic Dijon-Style Mustard

(Os, you can try substituting a really dry red wine for the white--it won't be 'classic' dijon, but it'll still be pretty tasty. If honey is an avoid for your blood type, try a bit of evaporated cane juice or some agave nectar).

This recipe is from Anna Michelle Jordan, author of The Good Cook's Book of Mustard (copyright 1996).
