Recipe For Fresh Pink Peppercorn Mustard

This recipe for fresh pink peppercorn mustard came about when I was testing Mariana’s recipe in the Taste magazine (July 2014, page 90) which did not work. I am loathe to throw anything away and so used up what I had made. My next batch is reminiscent of the freshly pumped mustards we have tasted at the Maille boutique in Paris. Head straight on to the recipe ♥

I cannot tell you when my love affair with mustard began. We always had a small variety of mustards in the house which included hot English, Dijon and wholegrain mustards without fail. I was not a huge fan of this condiment until my grandfather took me shopping in Sydney. He purchased a number of jars to add to the pantry. The shelves already had a few varieties I had not heard of, and now I could try loads more. It was amazing how each mustard brought something unique to the table. Since then, my collection has grown and grown with my favourite brand being Maille. Dave and I had a morning in Paris during the Air France strike last year, and we did two things before leaving for Munich. We went to the Eiffel Tower which was amazing, and not crowded so we could stand underneath the structure and just gaze at its enormity without being jostled. We also went to the Maille boutique store in place de la Madeleine. We left with a few jars and having loved the tasting experience as much as the shopping itself. This year April we had more time in Paris and our trip included a visit to the store for more trying and spending. I made a note of the prices and as the mustard costs the same at Charles de Gaulle, we left the airport for home in September with another jar. Mustard tasting is an art, and fresh mustard is slightly stronger and sharper than the ones we purchase in jars. I have used this fresh pink peppercorn mustard with honey, olive oil and sherry vinegar to marinade chicken which we then cooked on the braai. I have also made some small jars to add to the Christmas table for take home edible gifts.

  2. This sounds delicious. My dad introduced me to mustard many years ago when we used to have Christmas ham and cheese sandwiches over the summer, smeared with French Mustard. I have been outside Maille but had no time to go in. Next time!

  5. I love home made mustards like this and if I buy bought, it’s usually Maille. We were lucky enough to have a truffle one too. This pink peppercorn one sounds divine 😀

  19. I’m a food wimp and have never even tried mustard. And you are making me rethink that policy. I need to try this. Usually if a recipes calls for mustard I skip it, but I think if I made it myself, that would change my perspective….and I always think of having faith like a mustard seed……
