In my larder - wholegrain mustard

I love wholegrain mustard - it is a very versatile ingredient and it sprang to mind because I ran out a few weeks ago and realised what an essential it is. Some of the things I use it for are:

On roast beef or ham sandwiches - yum
To add to chilli con carne, my chicken tortilla recipe, beef stews, sausage casseroles, tomatoe pasta sauce (you don't taste teh mustard so much - more it deepens the tomatoe flavour)
With creme fraiche makes an excellent sauce for over steak or beef sausages
With olive oil and some balsamic vinegar makes a fab and quick basic salad dressing
Mixed with olive oil and then used to dress potatoe wedges before cooking - gives them a kick and bite

Perfect store cupboard ingredient!
