The primary ingredient in mustard is vinegar! And do you know what that means? The vinegar used to make a given mustard is HUGELY important in terms of the overall flavor and quality of the mustard. I’m here to demystify the mustard making process, (which is already easy as pie), and have all of you making your own fantastic (vastly superior) varietal vinegar mustard today!
This easy and beautiful appetizer should be part of your repertoire all year long! Roasting fruit concentrates and deepens the sweetness of the flavors, especially when you use fruits at their peak of season ripeness. Pair this dish with a fruit forward champagne.
Variations are easy, use the same directions but be creative with your fruit, oil and balsamic combinations: replace grapes with pitted cherries and our black cherry balsamic; peaches/nectarines and our basil olive oil and peach balsamic; plums and apricots (halved and stones removed) and our Persian lime olive oil and black currant balsamic; pineapple chunks with our spicy Baklouti oil and Golden Pineapple or Strawberry balsamic.
