Juliette Carr responds: Definitely wash and chop the burdock--don't peel it. You can grate it if you want but it will take...

- 1/2 cup yellow mustard powder
- 1/4 cup whole mustard seeds (yellow or brown)
- 1/3 cup white wine vinegar (or use some of the vinegar you used to preserve horseradish )
- 1/3 cup white wine
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbs. horseradish
Mix all ingredients In a blender. As you blend, add more vinegar or wine as needed to get the consistency you like. Some of the moisture will be absorbed as the mixture sits, so make it a little wetter than you think it should be. Store in a clean jar in the refrigerator. Wait several days for the flavors to blend before tasting. If the mustard is too hot, remove the lid, cover with waxed paper, and age it one month in the fridge.
