Maple Orange Sherry Wine Mustard

Maple Orange Sherry Mustard is delicious! It also makes a wonderful gift for a friend. Happily, Maple Orange Sherry Mustard is gourmet in flavor, yet easy on the cook and your pocketbook! 

Have you noticed the price of flavored mustard at your local market? Yep, some of those (tiny!) jars are expensive! But I have good news for you, homemade mustard is such an easy process. All it takes is a few mustard seeds, a bit of flavor, a small amount of wait time and you get fancy gourmet mustard. Mustard that is worthy of gifting to friends. Mustard you can be proud of. 

Maple Orange Sherry Mustard is mildly sweet from the maple syrup and sherry wine, with a bright note of citrus from the orange. It goes well on any meat sandwich, especially turkey and ham. Also very versatile, it is perfect to add to the pan after sauteing meat for a simple deglazed pan sauce or it can be used in any recipe calling for a spoonful of mustard. 

Break out of your mustard habit, there is more to enjoying mustard than regular old ballpark style... 

Like most prepared mustard, Maple Orange Sherry Mustard will need a resting time for the harsh bite of freshly ground mustard to mellow out. Simply secure the lid give it a rest in a cool dark spot, and the magic will take place. In just a couple of weeks, you will have a jar of delicious mellow, sweet mustard to enjoy!

You will also need the following:
