Sweet Maple Mustard

Makes 2 cups mustard


1 cup Smutty Nose Baltic Porter (New Hampshire) or any rich porter beer
1 cup malt vinegar
¾ cup brown mustard seeds
3 tablespoons dry mustard
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


In a medium bowl whisk together beer, vinegar, and mustard seeds. Let soak at room temperature for about 4 hours or overnight. Place mixture in a blender and add, dry mustard, maple, rosemary, salt and pepper. Blend until a semi coarse yet creamy mustard consistency is formed. Transfer to a small bowl and season with more salt as needed. We want the mixture a little more on the “loose” side as we are using it for a dipping sauce for the pretzels. To make this into thicker mustard, add ¼ cup of mustard seeds additional.
