  • Combine the chopped onion, chopped garlic, dry white wine, white wine vinegar, salt, black pepper corns and rosemary sprig in a large stainless-steel or enamel saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the sauce pan from heat and pour the onion mixture through a mesh strainer into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Discard solids.
  • Stir the yellow mustard seeds and dry mustard into the onion liquid in the bowl. Cover and let stand at room temperature at least 24 hours, but no longer than 48 hours.
  • Process the mustard mixture in a blender or food processor, adding the water until the consistency of cooked oatmeal.
