McClary Bros. Whole Grain Mustard* December 15 2015

Here's another one by Jess Caswell. This one is very tasty, believe me. A pretzel's best friend!

¼ cup – Yellow Mustard Seeds
¼ cup – Brown Mustard Seeds
½ cup – McClary Bros. Apple Pie Drinking Vinegar
¼ cup – Cider Beer
2 Tbsp – Brown Sugar
1 tsp – Kosher Salt

Mix mustard seeds, vinegar and beer into a non-reactive bowl.  Cover and let set for 24 hours at room temperature.  In a food processor, process the soaked mustard seed mixture, brown sugar and salt for about 5 minutes until thick.  The mustard will be grainy. Transfer to a jar and enjoy now.  Or, let the mustard mellow for about two weeks.  Taste it then and season as necessary.  Enjoy!

McClary Bros. Apple Pie Glaze December 15 2015

This recipe was given to us by Jess Caswell. She's one of our main vinegar slingers. You've probably seen her at our tasting room, if not, go say hi. She's awesome.

 Combine apple cider, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar into a small sauce pot.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a soft simmer.  Reduce the liquid by half.  Add cornstarch slurry.  Bring to a boil to thicken for about 5 minutes.  Take pot off of heat. Wait 10 mins then add our McClary Bros. Apple Pie Drinking Vinegar. Season to taste (TT) with salt.  Enjoy!

*A cornstarch slurry is a mixture of cornstarch and COLD water mixed together.  The mixture should have the look of heavy cream.  Make sure you use cold water and it is mixed well before adding to hot liquids.

McClary Bros. Vinaigrette December 15 2015

This dressing is so simple to make and can be drizzled on a bed of mixed greens, mixed in a tomato-garlic-basil mixture served on toasts for bruschetta, sprinkled over caprese salad, and so much more!

  • 1 part McClary Bros. Drinking Vinegar (use your favorite flavor or experiment with combinations of flavors)
  • 2 parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Sea Salt to taste
Vigorously whisk the ingredients in a small bowl (or shake in a closed bottle or plastic container) until well blended together and a smooth consistency is achieved. Soon the mixture will separate so mix again just before drizzling
