Ever heard of 'Verjuice' ? Me neither ! That's the ingredient that he
used in lieu of vinegar .
Verjuice is a green liquid distilled from unripened grapes. Verjuice has a
tangy, somewhat bitter, taste and when mixed with mustard seeds creates the
tangy flavor of Dijon mustard. Naigeon's recipe was originally produced in
the city of Dijon France; however, the name is not a protected trademark.
Any mustard made with verjuice according to Naigeon's recipe, no matter
where produced, can be called "Dijon mustard".

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
