Sweet & Sour Mustard Sauce

IMG_9269When you go to the trouble to bake a ham, do it justice by making this lovely mustard sauce to go alongside.

Makes about 1⅓ cups (enough for 8 servings) 


1 egg

½ c sugar

½ c apple cider vinegar

1T dry mustard

1T butter


In a small saucepan, whisk the egg thoroughly.

Stir in the sugar, vinegar, and dry mustard.

Add in the butter, cut into 4 or 5 pieces.

Cook over medium heat, stirring gently and constantly, while the butter melts and the mixture just starts to boil, and thicken.IMG_9258




Remove from heat.

Strain through a fine sieve to remove any little egg bits.IMG_9267_2

Pour into a small pitcher.

Serve warm, or at room temperature.
