    2       pn           Cloves -- ground
    5       tb           Dry mustard
    1       c            Cider vinegar
    2       sl           Onion, slice
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Cinnamon, ground
      1/4   ts           Allspice, ground
      1/4   ts           Tarragon, dried -- crumbled
    3       tb           Corn syrup, light
      1/4   ts           Dill seeds
 
   Soak together the mustard seeds, dry mustard, hot
   water, & 1/2 cup of the vinegar for at least 3 hours.
   Combine in a saucepan the rest of the vinegar, cold
   water, onion, brown sugar, salt, garlic, cinnamon,
   allspice, dill seeds, tarragon & cloves.  Bring to a
   boil, boil for one minute & cover. Let stand one hour.
   
   Scrape soaked mustard mixture into a blender. Strain
   into it the spice infusion, pressing solids into a
   strainer to extract all flavor.  Process the mustard
   (covered) till like a coarse puree with a definite
   graininess. Pour mixture into the top of a double
   boiler set over simmering water & cook 10 minutes,
   stirring often till the mixture is noticeably thicker.
   Remove from heat, add the Karo and pour into a storage
   jar. Let it cool uncovered, then cap and store. Can be
   refrigerated or not. Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
