What is it you ask? It's apple cranberry mustard.
Yeah, I know. Are you looking at it with alarming curiosity and
your head tilted slightly to the side?
It's fab. I promise.
Here's what I did. I took an 8 oz quilted jelly jar of my homemade cranberry sauce (my last one) and risked it on this experiment. This is how bad I wanted it to work. Now I like whole berry sauce, and that's what I canned, but I dumped it into my food processor and blended it until it was smooth. Then I took some coarse ground mustard and blended it in until I liked the taste. I did 3-4 squeezes. This is completely customize-able based on your mustard preferences. Then I spooned the cranberry mustard into a bowl. You can stop here and use it as a sandwich mustard. It's SO good.
The brie and apple grilled cheese at Mary's Market inspired this. I used to buy their mustard under the table in low quantities and I'm so excited to have recreated my own version.
To recreate the sandwich though, I needed apple as well, so I took about 2-3 apples worth of slices and processed them until the size of matchsticks. I mixed them right into the mustard. I'm hoping this amplifies the taste as the flavors marry. This is great on sandwiches. Grilled cheese. Salads. Makes a great cranberry sauce for turkey and even a dip. You can leave the berries whole for an even chunkier dip.
1 can homemade or store bought cranberry sauce (whole berry or jellied up to you)
