Bénichon mustard is a mix of mustard flour, white wine and fortified wine. Despite its name, this product has little in common with traditional mustard. It is spicy like mustard, but the addition of sweet ingredients and spices makes it a completely original speciality. It is one of the most surprising products of the Bénichon festival in the canton of Friborg.
Each family or baker has its own recipe, where the proportions of the different ingredients vary, but generally the ingredients remain the same.
