Wow, this sauce definitely has some bite to it! I never realized how strong dry mustard could be. It has a bite like that of horseradish and will clear your sinuses, lol. I had to add more apricot jam (3x more) for it to be pleasing, Correction made, this was very good. Served with grilled chicken breast as a sandwich spread with some provolone cheese. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
