I’m Listening

I love coming up with new recipes. I have a few students letting me know they want to learn how to make mustard. I have a few mustard recipes I make but, I wanted to come up with something I had never made. So yesterday I played in the kitchen and came up with two new mustard recipes. My husband is favoring one over the other. Not that he didn’t like both. He just loved the one. He said we need some bratwurst sausages. The one he loves is Wasabi Mustard. It has a little kick to it. The other is Apricot Nectarine Mustard. When I was making the Apricot Mustard I was thinking about roasted pork, sweet apple sausage and making it into a glaze for grilled meats and vegetables. I was thinking of the wasabi mustard on sausages and fried fish sandwiches. Let me know what you are interested in learning next. Think of something and be creative!
Check the class calendar; it goes to September 20th and I have a few mustard classes up and I will be adding the wasabi mustard in the fall. I need to find a spot to put the Apricot Nectarine Mustard before the apricot and nectarine go out of season. You can have a private class( a minimum of four students) to get the recipes you want, as long as the produce is in season.

See you in class

 

Useful Tool

Today I was at my cousin’s home and she made some yummy juice! I watched her walk around the kitchen trying to figure out how to pour it into a glass. I said, “Get your canning funnel out.” It works great as an all-purpose funnel: I use it to fill my thermos with soup and my glass with juice, too. I always tell my students to get this tool for canning and now I’m letting you know it can be used for other jobs around the kitchen too.

See you in the kitchen
