Bénichon mustard is quintessentially Swiss. It is a specialty of the canton of Fribourg. It is more like a spicy jam than a mustard. Its ingredients give it a sweet and sour taste. It is traditionally eaten with another Fribourg specialty Cuchaule a light brioche-like sweet saffron bread. Do this when you’ll be at home all day, or soak the powder over night and finish off the next day.
