How long can you store this in the fridge?

I have to make this for every Easter dinner to go with our ham.. It’s delicious but the only difference is that mine calls for butter. and whole eggs..

Thank you Thank you Thank you! I have been looking for a good mustard recipe for quite some time. I have always loved mustard over ketchup; I will add some seed to this as well and maybe try a batch with wine vinegar. OH the options are gonna be fun!! This one has substance and I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and get busy!!!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
