Tess' Story

If you like your mustard with a bit of heat, this recipe is for you! The chipotles in adobo sauce give it a smoky flavor and a rich brown color. Great on sandwiches or as a dip. If you want more heat, use fresh jalapeño slices and leave the seeds in.


2 c
jalapeno pepper slices, canned or fresh
1 can(s)
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, 7 oz
1 1/2 c
white vinegar
5 c
1 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
dry mustard
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
chili powder or to taste
1 c
whiskey (i prefer jack daniels)
2 1/2 c
prepared yellow mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

Prepare boiling water canner and keep jars hot. Place lids and rings in hot water but do not boil them.
Place jalapeño slices, chipotle in adobo and vinegar in a blender or food processer and process until smooth. Pour into a large stock pot.
Combine sugar, flour and spices in a large mixing bowl. Add two cups of the mustard and stir until well blended.
Pour mustard mixture into stock pot. Bring to a simmer and then cook for approximately 20 minutes, keeping at a simmer and stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and mixture is blended.
Add whiskey and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup mustard.
Ladle mustard into jars. Run a small spatula around inside of jars to remove air bubbles. Wipe rims clean with a damp cloth. Place lids and tighten rings to finger tip tight.
Process in boiling water for 7 minutes. Remove to a clean dish towel and let sit out of direct sunlight for 24 hours. Test lids for seal. Will keep for one year.

    Glad you like it Lori! I literally have to hide jars of it or my kids take it. I particularly love to use it as a glaze for pork loin or lamb chops.

    Have you ever tried this over cream cheese as a cracker spread? I was just thinking of pepper jelly poured over cream cheese. This would be really good in a Christmas gift basket. Thanks for posting.

    I have eaten this with EVERYTHING I thought! But that sounds great! I serve it plain as a dip with pita chips, too. I serve Spiced Peach Jam over cream cheese, just did at a party last weekend, ant it DISAPPEARS in minutes! Here's the recipe:
