Own work

This makes a great companion to the Baked Ham with Marmalade-Horseradish Glaze recipe.

Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

  • 1 c. dry mustard (about 3 ounces)
  • 2 T. yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 c. raspberry vinegar
  • 1 c. fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 T. honey
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. ground black pepper

Mix dry mustard and mustard seeds in medium bowl.  Whisk in raspberry vinegar.  Cover; let mixture stand overnight at room temperature.

Blend cranberries in processor until finely chopped.  Whisk sugar and eggs in medium-size metal bowl to blend.  Whisk in mustard mixture, cranberries, lemon juice, honey, salt, and pepper.  Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water and cook until thick and thermometer registers 180 degrees F, scraping down sides of bowl and whisking occasionally, about 45 minutes.  Cool cranberry-mustard mixture to room temperature.  Cover and chill at least 1 day.  (Can be made 3 days ahead.  Keep refrigerated.)  Bring mustard to room temperature before serving.
