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.
