Serrano Honey Vinegar Mustard with Garlic Olive Oil
Alright, you guys. It’s time to back it up just a little bit and make something quick and simple. Summer is coming and we have friends to hang out with and yummy yet healthy food to eat.
I promise you, this will become a new favorite.
4 tablespoons whole brown mustard seed
1 cup ground yellow mustard powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup Serrano Honey Vinegar
2 tablespoons Garlic Olive Oil
2 teaspoons saltDirections
Grind the whole brown mustard seeds in a spice grinder for 15 seconds or with a mortar and pestle. They should be cracked but not fully ground to powder. I'll even put them in a plastic baggie and use the rolling pin over them a few times to slightly crush them.
Combine the slightly crushed seeds, mustard powder and salt in a small bowl with the salt.
Mix in the wet ingredients including olive oil. It may seem runny but will thicken as it sits and once refrigerated.
Cover and store at room temperature for 2 days to allow the mustard to thicken and become less harsh. Allowing the mustard to sit at room temperature mellows the bite. The longer you allow it to "age" the more mellow it becomes.
Once the mustard is of the desired pungency, transfer to a clean glass and refrigerate covered tightly.
Will keep for up to 2 months refrigerated.
Serve with your favorite cheese and crackers! Enjoy.

Is there a more appropriate dessert to serve when hanging out with friends and family over the holidays than a Chocolate Fondue? Not in my house, and I will admit that I serve this to my friends year-round. Not only does it give you something to “do” while you are chatting after a meal, but it’s also very easy and customizable for each person.
Do waffles just have to be for breakfast? In my house, that answer is NO! In fact, we use our waffle iron to make savor waffles which make the perfect vehicle for cheeses, chutneys, and a host of creative toppings. This waffle recipe makes for a delicious dessert (or breakfast). Give it a try.
As a kid, I lived down the street from a huge peach orchard. I won't lie... a peach or two were stolen on plenty of hot summer days. Juicy and delicious! This salad brings me back and one you will certainly enjoy!
