I have a jar of Moutarde de Meaux Pommery. How the heck do you get that thing open? I've gotten the wax part peeled so that it's pretty much within the circumference of the cork, but I CANNOT get the cork out! Help!

Try running a small edged knife around the cork, perhaps that could be a solution for you.

I use a cork screw right in the middle and used brute strength. But like a wine cork ease up when you feel it start to give and hold on to the crock. Better that you drop the cork rather than the crock. Enjoy, pure mustard heaven.

I have not. What is it and where would I get it? Is there a favorite way you use these mustards?

A mustard sauce for rabbit would be one way to use it. But also very good with a nice game (or poultry) terrine. Cornichons on the side.

Pommery has a few different mustards that I have seen. The royale is a congac mustard and I have also seen one called fireman's and a grean peppercorn mustard. I first recieved Pommery Items as a gift but found a label on the box which led me to a fine foods store and everytime I go to the city I go and get a crock or two and other things. I have been told that it's also available on line and to do a search. I usually use these mustard while serving fine charcuterie items for a party or just for making a sandwich. Usually at easter I serve the de meaux with easter ham as suggested by Pommery.

Yum! The Royale sounds divine. I brought the Pommery back from a trip to Dijon. I do remember seeing a couple of different varieties on the shelf but opted for the original. Thanks for all the replies, I have some cookin' to do!
