Learn how to make this simple recipe that will impress even the toughest food critics. Spicy horseradish mustard adds a little kick and turns even the most ordinary meal into a new experience.
Gather the ingredients.
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 Tbsp freshly grated horseradish or 2 Tbsp bottled horseradish
- 1/3 cup dry mustard
- 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- Pinch of allspice
- Pinch of pepper
Make the mustard base.
Combine the hot water and dry mustard together and whisk until they are thoroughly mixed. Let the mixture sit for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Blend the spices.
In a blender, puree the white wine vinegar, garlic, horseradish, salt, pepper, sugar, and allspice. To get rid of large pieces, strain the mixture with a cheese cloth after it is pureed.
Heat the mixture.
Combine the mustard base and pureed spices in the top part of a double boiler for about 5 minutes.
If you don't have a double boiler, simply combine the two mixtures in a Pyrex or stainless steel bowl and place the bowl on top of pot that has a few inches of boiling water in it. Leave it on for about 5 minutes.
After the mustard has been heated, let it thicken up and cool.
