Upgrade Store Bought Mustard, and make it your own.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…


This photo almost looks black and white, but it is not. This is a shot out the front door. The ivy growing under the fir trees has about 2 inches of snow covering it. The rest of the yard has almost 4 inches. The wind has now come up and snow is blowing about, making it difficult to see more than 3 feet in front of your path.

We are in the house, warm, full of soup and letting the night fall. It is early to think that, but I am in for the night. There are cookies to bake, and music to enjoy.

I did get the conserve completed, and the canning kettle put away. There is molasses cookie dough chilling, ready to roll into balls and bake. The fudge is set, cut and ready to package. The noodles are dry, ready to package.

I got all of my old spice jars washed and ready to fill. I also got some flavored mustard ready. These flavors are delicious and make great last minute gifts.

Dressed Up Mustard
by the seat of my pants

I took a jar of Plockmans premium stone ground mustard (30.5oz) and in 1/2 of the mustard I added:
zest of 1 lime
1-2 T lime juice
3 T honey
1 T white balsamic vinegar
2 T sugar
1 T ground coriander

to the rest of the jar I added:
2 c dried cranberries
2 T white cooking wine
3 T honey
combine in food processor until mixed and the cranberries are chopped finely but not pureed.

I love flavored mustard, plus they keep practically forever and are great to spice up different foods and in your cooking.

Tomorrow I am going to assemble the Holiday Gift Baskets, they will keep nicely until Christmas in the garage where it is cold.

All that is left now is the stocking stuffers, there is always tomorrow!

Enjoy!

A Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meat

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

A Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats.
A Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats
I wanted to make more dry rub to have on hand to use as well as put into jars for stocking stuffers, or little thank you gifts. I came up with this rub last summer. We used it up actually and I had to make more, it is great.

I had read many, many recipes for dry rubs. Each of them had great reviews, and seemed great. However I kept coming back to the same thought, with so much heavy flavor from herbs and heat from dried chilies; how could you taste the meat?

So I came up with my own...............

Simple and Delicious Dry Rub for Meats
by the seat of my pants
makes about 1/2 c
1/c c Paula Deen house salt*
2 T brown sugar
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t dry mustard
1 T paprika
dash cayenne
1/2 t oregano
1/2 t basil
1/2 thyme

Grind your dry herbs in a pestle, combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in labeled bags in a cool dry place.
I made double recipes, in order to have some for gifting. I also made a batch with smoked paprika to spice things up.

* Paula Deen House Salt
1 c salt
1/4 c pepper
1/4 c granulated garlic
Combine and store in a cool dry area.

Enjoy!
