Cranberry Honey Mustard, another delicious flavored mustard to make and enjoy!

Cranberry Honey Mustard is delicious and so simple to make. It is one of my favorite flavors of mustard that I make by dressing up a jar of chunky dijon...naturally delicious, with no additives, colors, or artificial flavors. 


Cranberry Honey Mustard is the second flavor I like to make when I upgrade a jar of Dijon mustard. It is so easy and delicious. You may remember the Honey Coriander Lime Mustard made from the first half of the 20.5 oz jar. Well, this is how I like to use up the second half of the jar! I have been making this flavored mustard for a few years now, probably 20 or more when I think back. I used to make this at Christmas and tuck a jar into my son's stocking...

But it is not just for Christmas! No, not at all! Cranberry Honey Mustard is enjoyed year-round at our house. It is perfect on a turkey sandwich (of course!), stirred into a vinaigrette, or spread on chicken thighs or pork chops before baking. It keeps forever in the refrigerator, and from time to time has gotten pushed to the back of the shelf. But I have to tell you, I am always happy to come across that jar when I am organizing and giving the fridge a going through! 


It only takes about 10 minutes to whip up, and a week or two to mellow. Then it is ready to enjoy. And just so you know, it still makes a great gift. Take a jar to a friend, I am sure they will thank you! Feel free to use a smooth Dijon mustard or a coarser style. I have used both, it always turns out perfectly, and tastes great!

I have made mustard from scratch before, many delicious flavors are here in the archives of Scratch Made Food! & DIY Homemade Household. But sometimes when life is busy it is nice to upgrade a ready-to-use premium product that matches your own standards. And that is how it came to be, these two flavors of mustard. Mustard is a favorite around here, we use it in one way or another almost every day...


Some thoughts on this recipe:

As written this mustard has a bit of a chunky texture from the dried cranberries. If you prefer smooth mustard, I have two options to use. 

The first one, depending upon how dry the cranberries are, you may want to soak them overnight in the vinegar and water listed in the recipe. 

The second option is to let the mustard mellow in the refrigerator, then re-mix/process in the blender. 


Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • dried cranberries
  • Dijon Mustard
  • red wine vinegar
  • honey
  • salt
You will also need the following:
  • blender or food processor
  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • silicone spatula
  • storage jar with lid
Now we are ready to begin!
