DIY Yellow Mustard 6071

Welcome to a holiday edition of Sunday Supper where this week we are featuring Thanksgiving Leftovers! You know you’re gonna have them, and you know you can only eat so many slapped-together sandwiches before you want to pull your hair out. So we are here to give you creative and delicious ideas of what to do in the days following Turkey Day!

As soon as I heard today’s theme, I knew exactly what I wanted to make. You’re probably curious as to how making mustard could possibly count as a Thanksgiving leftover, but I promise, it does! In my family growing up, we weren’t all that big on transforming leftover turkey, so it would sit in the fridge in food storage bags, and one year in I believe late elementary school, I got the idea to take those cold shredded turkey pieces and eat them straight, dipped in yellow ballpark mustard.

Okay, seriously, it’s one of the best things you’ll ever taste. I don’t know what it is, but it’s just soooo darn good! I have so many fond memories of sneaking into the fridge late Thanksgiving night, or the night after, and plowing through a bag of turkey, dipping each piece in yellow mustard, while watching TV or chatting on the phone with a friend. I was such a fiend for this little tradition of mine that one year we had fewer leftovers for some reason and I dipped into a stash of turkey reserved for a soup, and got in a bit of trouble. It was worth it, my friends.

I could never convince my parents or sister of the merits of this little snack, but I have been able to convince Matt, and I hope I’ve encouraged all of you to give it a try too. For the record, Matt absolutely loves it and actually looks forward to it all year long.

So this year, the Sunday Supper team gave me a perfect excuse to make mustard from scratch, which I’d never done before. It’s very easy and the results are fantastic! Just let it sit at room temperature for about two to three days before using it. That’s about how long it takes to mellow into a “normal” mustard taste. Before that, the mustard flavor is strong to the point of almost horseradish spice levels. Personally, a bit much for my palate. But after a couple days, it was perfect.

{One Year Ago: Indian-Spiced Cranberry Chutney}

1 cup cold water
3/4 cup yellow dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar

Place the water, dry mustard, salt, turmeric, garlic, and paprika in a small nonreactive saucepan and whisk until smooth. Cook the mixture over medium-low to low heat, stirring often, until it bubbles down to a thick paste, 30 to 45 minutes. Please do this in a well-ventilated kitchen, or at least open your windows.
Whisk the vinegar into the mustard mixture and continue to cook until it’s thickened to the desired consistency—you know, the usual prepared mustard consistency, which ought to take anywhere from 7 to 15 minutes.
Let the mustard cool to room temperature. Transfer the mustard to an airtight container, cover, and keep at room temperature for 2-3 days, then refrigerate for up to 3 months. The mustard will be quite pungent the first few days, but will mellow with time.
