Take mustard seed and wash it and dry it in an oven. Grind it dry and sieve it. Clarify honey with wine and vinegar and stir it well together and make it thick enough; and when you would use it make it thin with wine.


150 mL honey 2 tbs mustard powder
2 tbs wine vinegar 50 mL red wine


Mix all ingredients, and heat just before serving.

  • I would not recommend preparing this sauce ahead of time. The longer it’s left, the stronger the mustard gets, and that can be unpleasant (though it will clear the sinuses!)
