How to Use Green Mountain Mustard

Deli Dirt Everything Bagel Hummus March 04 2015

There comes a time when you want hummus and you don't have any tahini. I know you can make hummus without tahini, but sometimes it just isn't the same. Enter: mustard.

I've already created a garlic mustard hummus. Now, to one-up the grocery store everything bagel hummus, I decided to make some hummus with Deli Dirt, our everything bagel mustard. Here's the recipe:


  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 heaping tablespoons Deli Dirt - Everything Bagel Mustard
  • Pinch of Garlic powder
  • Pinch of Minced onion
  • Pinch of Black pepper
  • Pinch of Kosher salt (big crystals)
  • Pinch of Sesame seeds (optional)
  • Pinch of Caraway seeds (optional)


  1. In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with the olive oil, lemon juice, and Deli Dirt mustard until smooth and creamy. Make sure to scrape the bowl to get everything incorporated. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water as necessary to achieve the desired consistency. (I didn't add any)
  2. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine, garlic powder, minced onion, black pepper, kosher salt, sesame seeds, and caraway seeds
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the topping you just made before serving.
  5. Serve alongside toasted naan (you can buy it in bulk in Costco) or pita chips. Your choice! I had it with carrots because I'm all healthy and stuff.

Apple Cinnamon Mustard Dip with Chopped Pecans September 13 2014

Green Mountain Mustard | Apple Cinnamon Mustard Dip With Chopped Pecans

We just launched our Apple Cinnamon Mustard. It's going to be around for the next few months and is super delicious. It's made with local Vermont apples and local apple cider - (Oh, and the only mustard we make with apple cider vinegar).

While delicious, the number one question we get is "What the heck do you use it on?" Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting a couple recipes with our Apple Cinnamon Mustard to help you out. This week's recipe is a great fall party dip -- apple cinnamon mustard dip with chopped pecans.

Here's the recipe:

  • 1 block softened cream cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Adams Apple -- Apple Cinnamon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Vietnamese Cinnamon (my personal favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon Vermont maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Whole pecans for garnish
  • Dipping things (apples, animal crackers, etc)

The process? Mix it all together in a bowl and serve. If you're keeping it overnight, make sure to refrigerate it :) Enjoy!

Aged Cheddar Biscuits with Garlic Mustard Butter Sauce April 22 2014


  • For the Garlic Mustard Butter Topping:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons Clove Encounter Garlic & Oregano Mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

  • For the Biscuits:
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for flouring your work surface and rolling pin
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk 
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  1. To make the Garlic Mustard Butter: Combine all ingredients in small bowl.

  2. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Mix again and set aside. Reheat just before taking biscuits out of the oven.

  3. To make the Biscuits: Preheat the oven to 425°F. 

  4. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. (If you don’t have a sifter, you can use a whisk.) 

  5. Add the vegetable shortening. Using a pastry cutter, or holding a butter knife in each hand, cut through the shortening and flour in an X-shaped motion until the shortening is mixed in. Be careful to break up any large pieces. You should end up with lots of little pebbles.

  6. Add the buttermilk and use your hands to mix everything together, turning the mixture until it forms a dough. Then keep turning and kneading until you’ve got a roughly shaped ball of dough. If things get sticky, add a little bit of flour. 

  7. Add the cheese and mix into the dough ball.

  8. Flour a board or countertop well, and turn the dough out on it. 

  9. Flour your rolling pin, and then roll the dough out until it forms a round about 1/2 inch thick. Fold the dough round into thirds, like you’re folding a business letter. Slap the dough down hard with the palms of your hands to really bring it together, and then roll it out and fold it in again. Do this 7 times in all, skipping the folding step the seventh time. Re-flour the work surface, the dough, and the rolling pin as you go. 

  10. Flour a 31/2-inch round pastry cutter, and cut out as many rounds of dough as possible (you should have 8 to 10 or so). Reflour the cutter as you go. (When we make these at the restaurant, we usually bake off the leftover pieces and eat them ourselves.) 

  11. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, lay the biscuits on it, and put it on the middle oven rack. At about the 10-minute mark, turn the baking sheet so that all the biscuits bake evenly. 

  12. When the biscuits are baked through and the tops are golden-brown (about 20 minutes), pull them out of the oven. Using a big pastry brush, coat the tops of the biscuits with the garlic mustard butter. The biscuits will be very soft and flaky inside, with just a little bit of crispness on the outside. Serve them while they’re hot.

BONUS: Dip the biscuits in more Clove Encounter - it's crazy good.

How to Make Homemade Hummus - With Mustard March 31 2014

After buying tubs and tubs of mass-produced hummus, I wanted to learn how to make my own at home - but with a twist. What's that twist you say? Fresh garlic cloves are a staple in your basic hummus recipe. So, I figured, why not add mustard to make it my own? Ladies & Gents, here's my version of absolutely delicious hummus (seriously, get off your computer and go make this):

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Clove Enounter - Garlic & Oregano Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  1. In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic mustard, cumin, oregano, and salt until smooth and creamy. Make sure to scrape the bowl to get everything incorporated. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water as necessary to achieve the desired consistency. (I didn't add any)
  2. Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the paprika before serving.
  3. Serve alongside toasted naan (you can buy it in bulk in Costco) or pita chips. Your choice!

PS: This is SO easy. It literally takes minutes. The biggest pain is cleaning the food processor. Get on it.

Hot Crispy Bacon & Onion Dip with Barn Burner Mustard February 05 2014

I sliced the tip of my finger making this dip, just for you guys (and don't worry - the finger isn't in it). I was dicing up the bacon and somehow flipped the knife over, swiped my finger over the blade, and found a mysterious cut minutes later.

Anyway, this dip is perfect for bacon lovers, sport lovers, anyone who loves to dip things, etc. Let's just get right to it.

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 Strips of Thick-Cut Bacon, diced
8 oz can of Sour Cream
3 Tablespoons of Barn Burner Mustard
1 Tablespoon of Dried Chopped Onion
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Heat olive oil in pan
2. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Set aside.
3. In a small bowl, mix sour cream, mustard, and dried onion until combined.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste
5. Mix in all but 2 tablespoons of bacon into the sour cream mixture.
6. Garnish with remaining bacon.

NOTE: I served this with wholegrain crackers, but it would be great with fresh veggies or pita slices.

Double Burn Tuna Sandwich with Barn Burner Mustard February 05 2014

When I was in my local grocery store this week, English Muffins were on sale. To me, nothing just makes a lazy Sunday morning (yeah, I don't have those) like a lightly-toasted English Muffin with butter. Am I right?

Now, normally when English muffins are on sale, it's BOGO, but for this week, it was buy one get TWO free. What? That's 18 English Muffins! So many buttery Sunday mornings....I'm excited. I picked up two original packs and a honey wheat - never had those.

With the snowstorm on Wednesday, I was practically trapped in my house. That meant no grocery store, so I made due with what I had. Here's my snowstorm lunch in all it's glory:

2 English Muffins
1 Can of White Albacore Tuna
3 Tablespoons Barn Burner Mustard (split up)
2 Tablespoons Habanero BBQ Sauce (plus more for the sandwich if you want)
1 Tablespoon Mayonaisse
3 Large Lettuce Leave, Hand-torn
Sliced Onion

1. Slice English Muffins in half.
2. Spread 1 tablespoon of Barn Burner Mustard on one side of the English Muffin.
3. Mix tuna with remaining Barn Burner Mustard, Mayo, and BBQ Sauce
3. Divide in two and spread on each sandwich.
4. Top with lettuce, onion, and more BBQ sauce if you’d like.

I made this in a snowstorm, so while some of the ingredients aren’t in the picture, it will make the sandwich that much more awesome.

Quick & Healthy Mustackers Perfect for the Super Bowl January 24 2014

Oreo came out with two new flavors of Oreos -- Rice Krispie and Cookie Dough. While I was picking my jaw up off the floor, I noticed I could do the same thing with a couple Ritz Crackers and some of our Golden Grain mustard. I made five of them for dramatic effect in the picture above, ate them all, and got to wondering how I could make them better. Are there other alternatives. Why yes!

Original Mustackers:

1 Sleeve of Ritz Crackers
12 Tablespoons Green Mountain Mustard (I used Golden Grain)

Assemble as you would, sandwiching one tablespoon of mustard between two crackers. Smush together and enjoy.

5 Other Ideas for Mustackers:

1. The Deli: Ritz crackers, Deli Dirt, swiss cheese and a sliced pickle
2. Pre-heat: Ritz crackers, Barn Burner, and a dab of your favorite hot sauce
3. Mighty Vermonter: Ritz crackers, Sweet Success, a slice of ham, and sharp cheddar cheese
4. The Canal: Ritz crackers, Clove Encounter, a slice of salami, and a piece of pepperoni
5. Sophistication: Ritz crackers, Spud Muffin, dried cranberries, and goat cheese 

Go ahead and make your favorite. Let me know what combination you come up with!
