Beer Caraway  Mustard

2 tablespoons dry mustard

3 ounces Founder’s Porter

1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire 

1 tablespoon caraway seeds ( toasted & crushed)

3 ounces malt vinegar

2 tablespoon Michigan honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 whole eggs

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Whisk all ingredients together and place in a metal bowl over a stock pot with simmering water. This is called a double boiler and the steam from the water will cook the mustard gently. Use a whisk to constantly stir the mustard. You want to make sure you are constantly scraping the bottom and the sides so the eggs do not cook in clumps. You want to end up with a smooth consistency. Once the mixture thickens to resemble a hollandaise sauce it is ready. Take into consideration that it will thicken even more when it cools down and you may want to adjust viscosity with more vinegar or a splash of water. Cool. Serve with whatever you like. Should last 7-10 days in the refrigerator no problem. Enjoy!
