A sweet, spicy, smoky mustard that's got just the right amount of kick to it. This is something I made up from a combination of a few mustard recipes, and we really enjoy it. The chipotle powder gives it a unique twist that the other mustards don't have. NOTE: As mentioned by some reviewers, flour is not safe for canned products. Some cooks, myself included, have used flour in canning for years with no bad results. Please be your own judge here.
- 16 ounces canned jalapeno slices
- 1 1⁄2 cups white vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 5 cups sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tablespoon turmeric
- 1 tablespoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried chipotle powder
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or less, to taste)
- 2 1⁄2 cups prepared yellow mustard
- 1 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
- Drain jar of peppers and place in blender with vinegar. Blend thoroughly until no chunks of peppers or seeds remain. Pour into a 5-qt or larger pot.
- Blend sugar, flour, and spices in a mixing bowl. Add 2 cups of the mustard and blend well. Pour mixture into pot with pepper-vinegar mixture. Mix well, and cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes until sugar is dissolved and everything is well combined.
- Add Jack Daniel's, and then turn heat up to high. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil, then add remaining 1/2 cup yellow mustard and stir well. Mixture should be thick enough to coat a spoon well, but if not cook until it does. Remove from heat.
- Fill jars 1/2 inch from top and process 7 minutes in a water-bath canner.
