  1. Hey guys, just wanted to point out that, although rosemary features prominently in the title, you completely left it (and the large pinch of sugar) out of the directions….. :-/

    1. Hi Katie,
      Maybe the directions are a little unclear. In the first step, after you saute the shallots and garlic, you “add vinegar through mustard,” meaning the vinegar, mustard and all the ingredients listed in between. This is done in a lot of cook books nowadays, but I totally understand how that might have been unclear. I’ll edit that.

      Thanks for the heads-up!
