Apple-Mustard Grilling Sauce
Why This Recipe Works
In lieu of the chemical emulsifiers that manufacturers rely on to built viscosity, we came up with an unconventional thickener to use in our Apple-Mustard Grilling Sauce recipe: caramel. It was super-adhesive, tacky, and quick to prepare. We also wanted our Apple-Mustard Grilling Sauce recipe to have a balance of sweet-tangy flavors and a spicy kick, so we paired apple butter with whole-grain mustard and then flavored it with cayenne pepper and cider vinegar for heat and tang.
