Tewkesbury Mustard - does anyone still make this?

Post by Lady Jane Rochester »

According to the book "Traditional Foods of Britain" by Laura Mason, a type of mustard made in Tewkesbury was so famous in the 1500s that Shakespeare even wrote it into a line in his play Henry IV: "His wit's as thick as Tewkesbury Mustard" - an insult used by character Sir John Falstaff.

You can probably make your own easily enough - it's just mustard mixed with horseradish :)
