Apple Cider Mustard

Updated: October 20, 2012 6:03AM

MAKES 1 1/2 cups

This sweet, savory, tangy mustard is the perfect foil for Scott Walton’s veal and pork bratwurst, sold by the pound at Markethouse.

4 cups apple cider

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme

1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped sage

1 cup Dijon mustard (extra strong)

Kosher salt

Fresh-cracked pepper

Combine apple cider, cider vinegar, thyme and sage in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer until it reaches a syrup-like consistency, about 45 minutes. Strain and let cool.

Mix cider reduction with Dijon mustard. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to use.
