Don't buy English mustard expecting it to be like French's American Mustard, it's hot and it'll blow your head off.
I also found that out the hard way :( It's like eating wassabi !
Ditto! I dunked a whole french fry (or, to be festive, crisp) into it and ended up in tears and a coughing fit. How do they eat this stuff!?
We eat it very sparingly... just put an amount the size of your thumbnail on the side of your dinner
plate and dip the food on your fork into it carefully!
It's traditional part of a delicious British Sunday dinner. It's great on hot dogs, too.
Try Dijon mustard first. Dijon is spicy but not quite as strong.
Thanks for the tip Pennine Lady. :)
