McClary Bros. Whole Grain Mustard*

Once upon a time not long ago...... I was a vinegar slinger for McClary Bros.  These vinegar mixers, called Shrubs, are friggin' deeeeeelicious!  Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good cocktail!  However, the flavor profile of these Shrub mixers are not only meant to be sipped in a killer drink, but to enjoy in any dish you create.  


With any new product I'm mildly infatuated with, I think of ways to use the product beyond it's initial intent.  One of my tricks is to take a recipe and figure out where I can replace ingredients to create a new twist.  One day it came to me: MUSTARD!  Mustard uses vinegar!  So what better way to showcase the nuances of these vinegar's better than a tangy, creamy, whole grain mustard?!  So here ya go.  Oh, check out their website filled with dozens of other recipes by clicking here.






Mix mustard seeds, vinegar and beer into a non-reactive or glass bowl.  Cover and let set for 24 hours at room temperature.  The next day, in a food processor, blend the soaked mustard seed mixture, brown sugar and salt for about 5 minutes until thick.  The mustard will be grainy, not fully smooth.  Season to taste.  Transfer to a jar and keep refrigerated for a few days to let the flavors meld together.  Slather it on a ham sammich or use as a delicious dip for pretzels.  Enjoy!
