• Honey Dijon Mustard

    Strawberries in Chocolate Shells with Raspberry Sauce-b101-dijon-mustard-sm.jpg Creating your own delicious gourmet dijon mustard is simple and enhances any dish from roasted vegetables to grilled meats and poultry. A favorite for sandwiches, this flavorful homemade dijon recipe will quickly become a requested favorite.
    Dijon mustard dates back to 1856 when Jean Naigeon (a native of Dijon, France) substituted Verjuice for vinegar in a traditional mustard recipe. The verjuice is an acidic "green" juice squeezed from unripened grapes. Today, we use white wine in place of the verjuice, but if you happened to have grape vines and wanted to make your own Authentic Dijon mustard, now you know the secret ingredient!

    You'll Need:
    2 cups dry white wine
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cup mustard powder (4 oz)
    3 tablespoons honey
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil or 1 tablespoon canola oil
    2 teaspoons salt

    Combine wine, onion and garlic in a small saucepan over medium and bring it to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Cool and strain, discarding the solids, return the liquid to the saucepan. Whisk in the dry mustard until smooth, then add the honey, oil and salt. Turn the burned back on medium-low and heat slowly to thicken the mixture, stirring constantly.

    The fumes from homemade mustard can be considered pungent, but the flavor cannot be beat. Avoid breathing the fumes directly as it thickens. Transfer to a glass jar to cool (a mason jar works great for this!) and let it set overnight at room temperature on the counter.

    Cover & refrigerate 2-8 weeks to age before using.

    **Note** Regarding the Mustard powder, to get this ingredient inexpensively we recommend purchasing it from your local whole foods, traders joes, natural herb shop, etc. Most of these places let you measure out your own spices and sell them by the ounce for a fraction of store-bought spices and seasonings. For example, I purchased 2 cups of Mustard powder for $1.12 at Whole Foods.

      How long can you store homemade mustard before you need to throw it out? Does it keep well?
