"A creamy mustard sauce with a rich texture that is perfect with pork. We have always used this on ham with our Christmas dinners... a family favorite, and one of the only 'family recipes' we have." — LIBIS

Use the same recipe, just a slightly different cooking technique, from an old Fanny Farmer Cookbook. It's wonderful! You can change the sweet/sour ratio by varying the amount of sugar to vinegar. This stuff is so good I'll eat leftover sauce out of the fridge with a spoon. It is also tasty on fish, spinach, and esp. corned beef.
This was excellent! I didn't have a double boiler, so I just toss all the ingredients and follow the direction as if I had a double boiler. This would be a great dip for chicken fingers or as a sandwich spread.
Great sauce! I served it with our Easter ham (14 people) and it was a hit! I used about a quarter less sugar as it was sweet enough. I think the next time I make it I will add fresh tarragon.
Try this sauce with and old fashioned boiled dinner (corned beef, cabbage, turnip, potatoes, carrots, onions).
I was glad to find this version after I lost this page from my Fannie Farmer cookbook. I did find it later and others may like this version, which is not so sweet:
2 Tbsp mustard
1 tsp flour
1 c light cream
1 egg yolk
1 tsp sugar
1/2 c vinegar, hot
Blend mustard, flour and 1/4 c cream. Heat the remainder of the cream and add the mustard mix to it. Beat the egg yolk and add to 2 Tbsp of the hot mixture before blending into the pot. Add the sugar, cook until thickened. Add vinegar at the end.
Bravo all I can say...I don't often join sites but had to join allrecipes so I could comment..just the right amount of spice and sweetness, this will become a reg sauce on my menu and if it does become a little to thick for you add a bit of chicken stock yummy spicy and creamy
This is a sweet/sour sauce with a very mild mustard flavor. It was OK but not what I was expecting. The next time I will cut the vinegar to 1/4 cup, the sugar to 2 or 3 Tablespoons and increase the mustard to at least 3 Tablespoons. I prefer a stronger mustard flavor.
This was surprisingly super good but a little thick for my taste. Next time I think I will cut back a bit on the flour but other than that its a good solid recipe and tasted awesome on our ham. I am going to try dipping chicken nuggets in it tomorrow for lunch!
used this as a base for a pizza, and it was perfect. very easy. might add a touch more flour next time so it thickens up a bit more, but overall a great simple sauce!
