Kat’s Extra Wonderful Mustard Sauce

Ham with Mustard Sauce

It is important to listen to your friends. My friend Kat kept telling me about her Grandmother Dienhart’s mustard sauce. She said it was a tradition in her family to always make it with ham. She told me how wonderful it was. She even sent me the recipe. She was so right. This stuff is amazing. Sweet, sour, creamy and just the right balance of flavors to pair up with the smoky flavor of ham. I could see this sauce becoming a tradition in my family, too.

While used on ham, it could be used with other smoked meats, roast beef, sausage, lamb or even duck.
