Cilla will be the first to tell you that I go through favorite food phases. The past few years have seen hard-boiled eggs, Kara’s oriental salad, fat-free fruit popsicles, fruit smoothies, yogurt, etc, etc, etc. When I’m in a favorite food phase, I tend to eat a lot of my current favorite food. Right now my favorite food isn’t a food at all, but a condiment. Right now I love my mom’s mustard.
I think Mom started making this mustard when we were in high school as homemade Christmas gifts. The mustard became something to look forward to for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Now, I look forward to this mustard all the time. I’m putting it on everything. It reminds me of our close-knit family and is my comfort food. Somehow, it makes me happy. Thanks, Mom, for giving me the recipe.
