The Devil's Mustard

Contributed by: Robin HinsdaleAdded: Oct 08, 2007 at 10:49 AM


'I came up with this mustard by accident. When I was first testing recipes, I experimented by mixing mild mustard flour and hot mustard flour with a variety of liquids, just to see what would result. I thought I was being frivolous when I mixed some hot mustard flour with nothing but Tabasco sauce, but I actually liked the combination a great deal. This mixture can be used right away, as part of a sausage and mustard buffet, perhaps, or with any grilled poultry or meat. But be assured, it is hot.'
