two-ingredient berry mustard

I like traditional mustard. But I looove fruity mustard. Luckily, it’s super easy to make it yourself. It literally takes seconds to fix. You’re definitely going to want to try this two-ingredient berry version. Enjoy it as a condiment of choice for meatless or no-so-meatless burgers or cheesy sandwiches. Use it as a dipping sauce in place of honey mustard. Or try it as a topping for grilled fish or poultry. Yep, it’s quite versatile. By the way, you can transform this recipe into an intriguing three-ingredient condiment by adding 1/2 teaspoon of minced fresh herbs, such as basil, rosemary, or tarragon. Whether you opt for the two- or three-ingredient version, do plan to enjoy it often!

But the highlight is the sparkling probiotic beverage … Farmhouse Culture Strawberry Hibiscus Gut Punch Sparkling Probiotic Veggie Drink, to be specific, which contains 4 billion probiotic cultures in a bottle. Now that’s a heck of a lot of good bugs! I found the veggie drink at Whole Foods Market, FYI. Cheers!   Note: The theme of this...
