After I began making mustard, I had tried about 5 recipes for all very different types, but they were all whole grain mustard.
I had this recipe standing by, but I kept passing over it because I hadn’t tried one that was “smooth” and to be honest, I was a bit put off by the fact that you started with prepared yellow mustard as it’s base.
I don’t know, it felt a little like cheating to me.
Finally I decided to go for it since it was so different from the rest I had already tried. I need to break out of my comfort zone.
It was instant love for both of us. We both love sweet, honey-type mustards and this is along those lines, but with a nice kick to it.
I personally don’t like my condiments too spicy and this one toes the line, but the sweetness and other flavors give it such a wonderful taste, it redeems itself.
And the added bonus with this recipe is that it makes SO much. I use 6 ounce jars to can my mustard and this made 10! But that is just fine, since when one of these is open, it disappears very quickly!
This is amazing on ham and turkey but is also fantastic as a dipping mustard with pretzels and crackers.
