Last week, I was contacted by someone doing some marketing for Rickard's and she was wondering if I would be interested in some recipes that use their product - with hopes that I'll blog about it. Never a person to say no to different ways to use beer, I gladly accepted.
The recipes all looked quite good - developed and tested by an expert chef. There was a punch, fondue (oooohhhh), and a mustard recipe. I was even supplied with some beautiful high-res pictures.

What I did end up trying is a variation on their mustard recipe. The primary (but not single) difference is that the original recipe called for Rickard's Red. My variation turned out sweet and spicy. I think it's going to be my new favourite mustard and I'll be making it again and again (when I eventually run out - the recipe made over three cups of mustard). Rickard's suggests that you serve it with pretzels or sausages and I think that pairing is bang-on. Here's what the Rickard's chef's version looks like (gotta get myself one of these food photographers :-)
Rickard's Dark Sweet 'n Hot Mustard
This sweet and hot mustard is especially tasty served with sausages, or pretzels.
- 1 bottle Rickard's Dark beer
- 2 cups mustard powder
- 1 cup brown sugar (I used 1 cup sugar and 1 tbsp molasses)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tbsp onion powder
1. Pour beer into a medium-sized pot and let sit for 15 minutes.2. Add remaining ingredients to pot and whisk together.3. Over high heat, continually whisk mixture until boiling.4. Transfer to a medium-sized mason jar (at least 18 ounces), seal and let cool before refrigerating.

- All of the opinions in this post are my own. I didn't receive any swag for publishing this post or the mustard recipe. Not a single bottle of beer, t-shirt, hat, or dancing girls on party buses (party buses? wrong beer!) made their way to my doorstep, although I wouldn't complain if they did :-)
