Awesome Mustard for anything from pretzels, sandwiches, or glazes on hams. I add more peppers than in the recipe for a hotter butter (approx 60 ranging med-large). Also I am trying other peppers as well, habenero, maybe only 10-12...I'll have to let you know how it works :) You will not be disappointed! I have sold the canned product to many family and friends and they can only say this is the best! Hope you enjoy!!

Just finished making a batch - made 8 full pints perfectly (5 pints & 6 1/2 pints). Used 4 cups of sugar & mixed end-of-garden peppers - red jalapeno, serrano, cayenne, red bananas & fish peppers picked today before our first frost.
Whooowee - tangy, sweet & spicy all at once! Beautiful too with the red flecks in the yellow base. Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe. DF had come down with about 2 T of a mustard based sauce with flecks of green jalapeno init - similar taste & texture - I was stumped about the thickener until I found your recipe. She couldn't get the recipe from the fellow who was selling his wife's version. Was a little concerned about the flour but with all the sugar & vinegar (& 30 reviewers who all seemed to do well) I decided to go for it. Will be putting this in Christmas baskets for those who have been nice... mighty nice. Thanks for the keeper CrazyCyndi! ****update - on my third batch since initial review 12/12/09! Crack mustard for sure & very flexible - this batch has 1/2 purchased jalapenos & the rest of my fish, cayenne, giant marconi & a few small carefully deseeded/depithed red Congo Trinidads. The green jalapenos makes the mustard yellow a bit less bright but not unattractive - especially after it is tasted. Thanks again, CrazyCyndi!****
Addendum - I use the peppers & seeds - 4 cups finely chopped peppers. I also start with the sugar, salt, vinegar & peppers which I bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Then I add the mustard & the water/flour premixed slurry with an additional 1/2 cup of water. Cook until thickened & then can in sterilized hot jars as direcred. This stuff is MARVELLOUS! I am making CASES of pints because of the begging (folks actually bring their jars back to be able to get more of this stuff LOL!)! Crack mustard is right!
