Homemade Honey Mustard (Paleo)

August 20, 2013

I've already got my mind set on what I'm doing for 31 Days in October, and as well as the food went last year you can bet I'm doing another food theme this year.

Seriously, all I think about is food.

31 days of paint colors wouldn't fly over here.

In the way of recipes, today's recipe is something I've been working on for awhile.

I love honey mustard, but what I buy and use to make just isn't good for you at all.

This one though, is good for you.

Step 1 - place egg, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a jar.

Step 2 - blend with an emulsifier (also called a hand blender) until thick and creamy. You can stop here if you like and this is a basic mayo recipe. 

Step 3 - Stir in honey and mustard. Store in a jar for up to a week and serve chilled.

I actually started this off in a mason jar and quickly remembered that my emulsifier wouldn't fit in it, in comes the Pyrex. 

If I was just making the mayo I would add a lot more pepper than usual, I really like peppery mayo. The mayo on it's own is considered Paleo, if you'd like the honey mustard to be Paleo you can either buy mustard that already fits the bill or make your own. I found some great Paleo condiment recipes here
