Italian Mustard. Get the seed which is called sinapo and steep it for a day or two, changing the water often; get blanched almonds and grind them up and put them with the mustard seed grinding it all together; then get good must syrup to make it sweet, and for a tart taste use verjuice, and strain everything and make it thick. Add spices if you want it with spices.
