    I purchased a few different types mustards to give as christmas gifts in a basket. Now I need what else can I place in the basket to go with these mustards.
    cranberry mustard
    italian mustard
    creole mustard
    market mustard.

    Do I write recipes that they might work with, as I cant open them to try.

    Cant give cold cuts as these need to be pre wrapped and given to them when I see them during the holiday.

    Crackers dont go with mustards.

    Help I might have made a mistake here buying them..

    If it wouldn't be too expensive, do up a basket with homemade bread, a jar of mustard, and a block of good cheese!

    (I've bought Easter basket bags at Dollar Tree before ~ or check Amazon!)

    I did think of the bread, but didnt the cheese at all. One basket will be for my brother, so I did think of chewy crusty bread, a dry italian salami, jar of the Italian mustard, and a few bottles around the world beer, and now the cheese that would be perfect.

    Some cold cuts don't need refrigeration. Well, not exactly cold cuts, but if you look at any of the gift baskets from places like Hickory Farms or even Macy's or Walmart they do contain rolls of sausage/salami that does not need to be refrigerated until after it's opened.

    Little cocktail rye breads would go good to spread on the mustard and top with a nice summer sausage or dried type of ham like procheto(sp) or even nice smoky ham slices.
    Little cocktail smoky sausages or hot dogs.

    One year, a did a mix of 2 or 3 condiments, and made a small cookbook of recipes to use with condiment.

    Cranberry mustard, wish turkey apple and cheese
    On porkchops mixed with honey as a glaze
    Mixed with olive oil and vinegar for a great vinaigrette

    - you could add a good bottle of olive oil the recipe, and maybe some dried fruit and nuts for a nice salad

    - a mix of beer bread along with a bottle of beer; for instance:
    a berry beer, the regular flour mix in a mason jar, but add nuts and dried cranberries to the mix
    Then add a recipe for a roast beef sammie on the gourmet bread
    The bread/flour mix can be in a mason jar.

    - yes many meats, salamis, sausage don't need refrigeration. That would be great with crackers. and/or crusty bread

    - a bottle of wine with bread, some cheese, mustard; and maybe include a recipe for a nice dip that includes the mustard

    - or honey and horseradish that can be added to the mustard for a unique dipping sauce

    A collection of recipe cards; make your own up just using 8 1/2x11 card stock, make the cards 5 1/2x4 1/4, Write the recipe, add some clip art and cut them out. Then tie together with some jute string or ribbon.

    Great ideas...

    What type of pretzel goes with mustard...I a soft fresh baked pretzel would be the one, so if I try a recipe to make those , how long before giving would I bake these. or the bagged hard salty ones.

    The beer bread recipe seems like he might try that adding cranberries and nuts, what do you mean by berry beer.

    Pretty much all pretzels go with mustard. They use the hard ones at mustard-tastings, but I'm partial to softer ones.

    Berry beers are usually made by small breweries (micro brewers) and are flavored with berries: strawberry, blueberry, raspberry and cherry are some of the most common berries used. Many of these beers are seasonal due to the availability of the fruits.
