Sweet and Spicy Gourmet Mustard Dipping Sauce

Sweet and Spicy Gourmet Mustard Dipping Sauce

This recipe is sodium free, fat free, and delicious. To make this faintly sweet and spicy mustard sauce calorie-free and sugar-free, replace the brown sugar with 1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar. If you’re short on time and cannot make this gourmet mustard sauce in advance, sprinkle the fries with just a touch of vinegar, and then toss to combine. The vinegar will heighten the flavors of the fries. It’s my favorite way to serve them!

  • 1 cup ServingsServings


  • ½ cup dry mustard (about 1 ounce)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 small garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the dry mustard and water. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, ginger, allspice, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for five minutes.
  3. Whisk the mustard mixture into the spiced vinegar. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow the mustard to stand for two hours. The sauce will thicken slightly.
  4. Using a soft spatula, scrape the mustard into a jar, and allow it to mellow overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
