Tangy Cranberry Mustard

"This is a copycat recipe for Hickory Farms Cranberry Mustard, which is difficult to find outside of the Christmas season. It is great on Summer Sausage, or spread on a carved turkey sandwich, or used as a glaze on a baked ham. Use it as a barbecue sauce for chicken, or a topping for broiled salmon. It even makes a great dip for chicken fingers! You can also can it in small jars to give as a gift. It's simple and delicious! I listed the brand names of the ingredients I used, but you can use your favorites."

  • Add all three ingredients to a small saucepan. Stir constantly and simmer until sugar is dissolved, about 3-4 minutes. Be careful to keep stirring to avoid the sugar burning or caramelizing.
  • Pour into airtight container (jar or tupperware) and keep refrigerated up to one month. If canning, you may can pints or half pints at the same temp/time as any jelly or jam recipe.

I'm an artist and I work from home, so I love to have the smell of something delicious cooking in the background while I'm working. Cooking is the way that I show love to my family and friends -- I get that from my Southern grandma, who always made amazing meals for our large extended family. Since I learned to cook from her, I always end up making meals that could feed a small army. Down home, old fashioned, comfort foods that make lots of leftovers are my specialty. I love to eat any kind of ethnic food but I'm just learning to cook from different cultures. My favorite place in the world is New Orleans, so I love to make Cajun and Creole food. I call myself the Faux Chef because I don't have the talent to be a chef but I try really hard. My problem is, I never measure anything (thanks, Grandma!) which makes me TERRIBLE at baking.
