'I love the element contributed by the candied ginger in this smooth, sweet mixture. I use this mustard in a variety of recipes and find it is especially good as a dip. Because the base of this mustard is prepared dijon, lengthy aging is not required. I find the mustard is fine for use after resting for a day. Do store it in the refrigerator, however, so that it maintains its peak of flavor.'
