Homemade Christmas Mustard

Christmas whisky mustard
Foodie gifts make the best stocking fillers, they can be used during the Christmas season, and help make your loved ones holidays extra special.
This week we paid a visit to Fortnum and Masons. It's such a gorgeous place full of delicious foods and preserves. I was toying with the idea of buying my husband some of their delicious mustards for Christmas.
But in line with my blog mantra, I thought it be far nicer to give some homemade options ago. In my opinion they have just as much flavour for a quarter of the price.

Two flavours that caught my eye were the Christmas and Whisky mustard. You can grind mustard seeds to a powder to make your own, but for simplicity I just use good old Coleman's mustard powder.
This is a great gift to make as it takes less than five minutes make and involves no cooking.

Whisky mustard recipe
5 Tablespoons mustard powder
1 Tablespoon flour
2 Tablespoons Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Good quality Whisky
3 Tablespoons Honey
1 Tablespoon water
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
Start by mixing the mustard powder, paprika and flour with a whisk to remove any lumps, then mix in the water.
Once the paste is smooth, add in the other ingredients. Leave over night.
The next morning you need to check the consistency of your mustard. It will thicken up in the jar, so if it looks thick add a little extra honey, you can add flour to thicken, but only do this if it's watery.
Pour into sterilised jars (I like the 70g mini kilners the best for gifts). The leave to work it's magic in the jar.This mustard tastes best if you give it a couple of weeks in a cool dark cupboard.

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using  Cloth Nappies  for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro. I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too! Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies You can grab little bloom nappies on  amazon  from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?
