I do. If it's just been opened or is still near the top i will dip chips or goujons right in there. It rules. Try it and get back to me.

Seems like a good idea if you're the only one eating the mustard and the top of the jar is wide enough.

That's a big no no.
It is very unhygienic to dip food into a jar like that.
You could find yourself coming back to use the mustard a week later only to find your very own set of cultures growing on the top.

On the up side of course, you could find yourself becoming famous for discovering a new life form.

I have the legs from under you if I caught you doing that with my mustard.

I love rolling up a bit of delicious ham and dipping it into the pot of mustard.

Mustard, mustard, mustard, isn't it great stuff?

Hope you have your own personal mustard pot, because that's nasty.

I have wiped it clean with food when it was going to be thrown out. I would never dip in new, especially stuff like ham. You are cross contaminating with food with a short shelf life. If you go sticking this ham contaminated mustard in a normal press then its even worse.

Reminds me of a mate of mine who worked in a deli in a supermarket, I asked him to get me a bag of some southern fried chicken floury spice mix. I had been using it and weeks later I was looking in the bag and pulled out some hard chicken skin. They had been dipping the raw chicken right in this big bag of flour/spices kept at room temperature. Sickening.

I thought you said "your own set of Culchies"

Careful now.
I'm one of those 'culchies' of which you speak.

I don't do it now.

No. If you dip something into a jar of food, be it mustard, mayonnaise or honey, you are generally reducing the shelf life of it to that of whatever you dipped in it.
