Time for another quick Christmas recipe – but this time it’s nothing sweet. After all the feasting on cookies and nonstop gingerbread-snacking, it’s a welcome change to have something savoury in between. 😉
This delicious Christmas mustard is quickly whipped together and makes such a great gift from your kitchen. In Germany it’s a tradition for many families to have sausages and potato salad for dinner at Christmas Eve and so the mustard can be put to good use right away. But even without a large side dish the mustard will shine, for example in a delicious salad dressing or to season sauces and gravy – try it for yourself!
- 2 tsp ground cardamom (or gingerbread spice)
- 3 tsp honey
- 1 tsp chilli flakes
- 10 g ginger
- the zest of one orange (about 3 tsp)
- 100 ml English mustard
- 100 ml Sweet mustard
- Peel ginger and chop it finely, then mix it in a small bowl with orange zest, cardamom, chilli flakes, honey and English mustard. For a smoother texture you can blend the mix at this point. Finally, stir in the sweet mustard and mix well.
- Fill into in sterile jar, close tightly and decorate the jars or add nice labels. Stored in a cool place it will stay fresh for at least three months.
I think it’s great to have a hearty gift idea from the kitchen up your sleeve and I’m sure I will give away some of those jars at Christmas. Would that be something for you as well?
Stay sweet & HAPPY MUSTARD MAKING!
