Honey Mustard Powder
Honey Mustard Powder
Our Honey Mustard Powder, also called Honey Mustard Seasoning or Honey Mustard Rub, is a versatile all-around seasoning blend. With an ensemble cast of herbs and spices supporting the classic, time-honored combination of honey and mustard, this seasoning blend fuses sweet and savory notes with just a little sour and a touch of heat.
What is Honey Mustard Powder?
Our dry Honey Mustard Powder is a balanced combination of piquant mustard and sweet honey, two of nature’s ancient foods. This rub is shaped by pungent aromatics and tempered by sweet and earthy spices. It brings bold flavor to barbecue, salad dressings, and cold summer salads.
Honey Mustard Powder is blended from brown mustard, granulated honey, granulated maple sugar, garlic, onion, ginger, coriander, turmeric, tamari powder, black pepper, apple cider vinegar powder (IP maltodextrin, apple cider vinegar and IP modified food starch).
The story behind Honey Mustard Powder
Honey mustard may the reigning king of classic flavor combinations. There is some small amount of debate about who can lay claim to mustard’s emergence on the food scene, but what’s not up for debate is that mustard is a spice whose use originated in antiquity. Native to the Mediterranean and temperate zones of Europe and Asia, there is evidence of mustard being ground for use in Sumeria circa 4,000 BCE. Sumeria was a region in Mesopotamia’s Fertile Crescent, tucked in at the juncture of the Tigris, the Euphrates, and at the head of the Persian Gulf. Ancient Egypt used mustard medicinally, but it was also listed as a food in their inventories. During the Medieval era around the Levant, it was used as a ground spice. Moreover, people have been collecting honey for roughly 8,000 years. By 4,000 BCE, beekeeping was becoming a practice in Sumer—and in other parts of the world. There is evidence in Sumerian writings of that time that mustard was ground into paste and mixed with sweeteners like honey.
We wanted to put a different spin on traditional honey mustard, which is often simply honey. Plus mustard. Without much of anything else. And while classics are classics for a reason, that doesn’t mean they don’t leave any room to be improved upon. We added maple sugar to our honey, to create a sweet flavor with depth and complexity, then contrasted that with the bold, umami-laden backbone of tamari soy sauce powder, to make the flavors pop. The sunny earthiness of turmeric adds balance to pert cider vinegar, which cuts a sour path through the deeper flavors and elevates everything along the way.
What does Honey Mustard Powder taste like?
Our Honey Mustard Powder is embedded with the sharp, spicy flavor of savory brown mustard seed and the sweet, deep smell of honey and maple sugar, with a clean sweep of cider vinegar coming in right behind the honey. Buoyed by the pungency of onion and garlic, this honey mustard blend stays balanced thanks to earthy turmeric and citrusy coriander, and finishes with the gentle burn of black pepper.
How to use Honey Mustard Powder
Try Honey Mustard Powder tossed over hot wings, two ways. Coat the wings in honey mustard seasoning and bake for wings with a sweet, mellow flavor, or bake, fry, or air-fry wings and toss in a sauce made from cold water and our seasoning to finish for more upfront heat and flavor. Coat pork in Honey Mustard Powder when you make some Honey Balsamic Pork Chops. Add complex flavor to classic condiments by stirring into red wine vinegar and olive oil for a quick and easy vinaigrette. Pour over roasted potatoes for an easy, non-dairy potato salad. Sprinkle over pretzels or peanuts and bake for a fun snack, or combine with sour cream and cream cheese for a dip for pretzels, fresh veggies, or chicken fingers.
