    By the way, it is very good! Reminds of the mustard I grew with in France.

    You mentioned a few times that this recipe can only be water bath canned in 4 oz jars, but never explained why.
    Why can’t I can it in 8 oz jars? Thank you

    How long does it keep after you open it?

      Betty, it keeps just like any other mustard when you refrigerate it. I usually open and use a jar in less than a month. But it should keep for a couple of months refrigerated. The jars are small so it's pretty easy to finish one off in a couple of weeks.

    Can you use the same size jar but with tight fitting metal lids?

    • Arlene Mobley

      Nadya

      I am not sure what you are asking. You must use the same size jar the recipe calls for and the flat lid and band used for canning. There are only 2 sizes of canning lids. Wide Mouth Lids or Regular lids. This recipe calls for the regular size canning lids.

    Did I miss how the shelf life on the canned mustard?

    Reply

    • Arlene Mobley

      Judy all water bath canned items have a 12 month shelf life. Unless you are using the new Ball flat lids that have an 18 month shelf life. (affiliate link) Ball Canning
