Ready In:
1 pint




  • Place dry mustard in a bowl, add vinegar and rum. Do not stir. Cover and let stand 5 - 12 hours.
  • Place mustard mixture in the top of double boiler, or in a bowl set on top of an inverted bowl in bottom of big pot with water half way up bottom one (my home made double boiler). Water should be hot but not boiling.
  • Add eggs one at a time, whisking completely after each.
  • Gradually whisk in sugar until smooth, beat in butter, salt and pepper and cook until thick, about 5 minutes.
  • spoon into sterilized jars and seal. Store in refridgerator until ready to use.

    Wonderful! Made this after receiving my first homemade mustard from friend who refused to give me her recipe. LOL! Think yours is even better. Mine did curdle so pushed it through sieve to get out the lumps. Am guessing that the water was hotter than it should have been but honestly it was only tiny bubbles. I don't can so am refrigerating it. Thank you MarraMamba for sharing.

    I made this mustard today to give away as Christmas gifts in a food bsasket. Bother and my wife loved the mustard and I am not a mustard fan. I double the recipe which makes alot but I quadrupled the rum. I wanted to be able to taste the rum. This is a keeper.

    WOW! The dark rum really added a special pop to this mustard. I agree that this would make wonderful gifts....if you really want to give some away. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Why make normal mustard when you can have RUM mustard! This was amazing Marra, we both loved it! I had some of my own tarragon vinegar and I used Colman's English mustard to make this with. I agree that this would be a wonderful gift for someone too. We ate this with sauerkraut and sausages for a delicious and very tasty accompaniment. Thanks! FT:-)


http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/527607/cookswithcattitude.jpg I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Stockingswapcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/cookbookswap.jpg"> <img src="http://www.caymandesigns.com/foodothers/fallswap.jpg">
