Fire in a Jar

Tigress in a Pickle wasn't kidding when she said that anyone in snowy winter weather needs to make this mustard.  It's insane.  Firey.  Gingery.  Garlicky.  Mustardy.

So far I've eaten it on a Tofurky sandwich, dipped pretzels in it, and eaten it straight up off a spoon.  Oh, and on a pumpernickel bagel with Tofutti cream cheese.  I'm basically just grabbing anything I can and slathering it in mustard.  I'm deciding what to eat based on how well it will serve as a mustard delivery system.  

This is definitely a new staple in our house.  It takes all of about 2 minutes to mix the ingredients up.  Then it sits for 24 hours and you add a few more spices and then blend.  SIMPLE!!!

I went a little easy on the cayenne, though.  Instead of 3 tsp., I used only 2.  Maybe I wouldn't eat it quite as fast with more cayenne, but I'm not sure I could take that much more heat- This stuff is crazy hot and flavorful.  Be sure to check out Tigress' blog for the recipe.

I'm not a huge mustard fan, but Dan loves the stuff! Maybe I should make him some!

Hope Mike is continuing to feel better!

This is exciting. Mustard is my favorite condiment! I've never thought of making my own though. Thanks for the link.
