  2. Pour into a covered glass jar & store in the refrigerator.

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.

Fantastic! I served with pork loin and it was a big hit. DH also suggested making it as a dipping sauce for chicken tenders which I will definitely try. This is a super easy go-to sauce that really jazzed up my ordinary tenderloin. Thanks for posting!

I've only tasted the sauce, but will cook it on chicken tomorrow night. I think it will be delish on the chicken, just by dragging my finger through the sauce and having a taste! Made for PRMR tag.
