mustard mousse for ham

This recipe was given to me by my 102 year old mother-in-law before she passed. Once we had it with our Christmas ham, we couldn't imaging eating ham without it. It's awesome on leftover ham sandwiches too. I'm thinking it would also go well with corned beef, pastrami, or roast beef. I've never been able to find out, there's never any left!
