I just Googled "Mustard Recipes". I had no idea there were so many kinds of mustard. One website had 11 different recipes.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

I love this idea. I will pull through my books for the recipe I use. (I will have to do this a little later.) I make mustard at Christmas for little gifts and everyone always enjoys them!

Here is the recipe:

Coarse-Grain Raspberry Mustard
Makes about 1 cup
1/4 cup yellow mustard seeds
2 teaspoons mustard powder
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup raspberry vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup seedless raspberry jam
Whirl mustard seeds, mustard powder and water in electric blender for 1 minute until coarsely pureed to paste.
Place in glass bowl, cover, and let stand at room temperature at least 2 hours or overnight.
Stir occasionally.
Combine mustard mixture, wine, vinegar and salt in top of small double boiler.
Cook over simmering water, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Cool slightly and place mixture in electric blender.
Add raspberry jam.
Whirl until well mixed.
Place in sterilized jar with lid and refrigerate for at least 24 hours
before using to allow flavors to blend.

Store in refrigerator. Keeps well for several months.

"I make mustard at Christmas for little gifts" - that's what I used to do also. Maybe I'll get back into doing that now that I'm retired!!

Thank you, thank you!!!
This is one I make, compliments of "A Dash Of Mustard".

3 tbsp yellow mustard seeds, finely ground
2 tbsp mustard powder
1 1/2 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup champagne

Place the ground mustard seeds in the bowl of a food processor with just enough water to moisten them. Let sit 10 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spoon into jar and refridgerate, and leave for at least 2 weeks before opening. I've served it wth salmon, chicken, all kinds of things. we really like it. What a great excuse to open a bottle of Champagne!!

I have a few others I'll fish out! But, most of mine say the shelf life is maybe two weeks in the fridge,. That's why I never made them to give away at Christmas.

Way off topic, Dollop, are you in Culpepper??
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
