Sweet and Tangy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
If you have never used English mustard before let me pre-warn you it has some teeth to it. It is not your normal yellow mustard we get here in the States so taste this before you send it to the fridge and dip into it with that special dipping treat. Try a little dab to taste so you can adjust the amount of heat and sweet with either a bit more honey or mustard if you like it on the hot side. This is really a nice kind of sweet and sour (well hot really) kind of taste which as many of you know is one of my favorite flavor profiles aside from bacon.
I am lucky one of my dear staff members is from the UK so I got turned on to this treat a long time ago with a recipe we were doing where she suggested I give it a try. Frankly I like spicy and I like it in many forms from horseradish to chilies and well anything that perks up the old sinuses. Mustard is something that is usually tame here in America a few brave souls have discovered some of the special deli brands that pack a bit of punch and what a nice way to wake up a sandwich than with a bit of spice to the otherwise ordinary deli meat.
I mean things like corn beef, pastrami and roast beef (which is where the English use this) are just vastly improved in my onion by a bit of tangy mustard in the mix. I mean also think of those plain nuggets and chicken tenders without something to give them a wakeup call. I mean this will go great with pretty much any fried chicken dish not just the crispy little bite size pieces. Try it on a piece of your favorite fried chicken if you want to find out for yourself don’t just take my word for it. Now I give some ideas on specific brands you can always use what you like but the results will vary especial on the “Colman’s Mustard” this is what gives this most of the heat.
- 1 cup Sir Kensington's Mayonnaise
- ¼ cup Colman's Mustard
- ⅛ cup Pommery Meaux Mustard
- ¼ cup Dutch Gold Pure Honey from Orange Blossom
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Blend all the ingredients together in a glass bowl by whisking them until smooth and well blended.
- Place in a covered container in the refrigerator and allow it to chill overnight so the flavors can meld.
- Remove from fridge and give a quick whisk and enjoy.
We use both French and English mustards for a meeting in the Chunnel kind of dipping sauce that is counterbalanced with the sweet taste of pure orange blossom honey for a special blend of bite and sweet. Feel free to add more honey if it is a bit too much heat for your liking or if you want it a bit hotter add a bit more of the Colman’s mustard this is the main source of the heat. This sauce goes well with chicken tenders and a slew of other foods you would use a mustard based dipping sauce for even use it as a spread for burger buns.
