Since Easter is just next week and that usually means there’s ham on the menu, I’m sharing my favorite homemade mustard recipe again. If you’ve been following us for any length of time you’ve seen it for sure; I make a batch several times a year and usually give small jars as gifts at Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It’s perfect with ham and on sandwiches, and if you like your mustard with a bit of a kick, then this recipe is for you!

Today I’m sharing free printable tags along with the recipe, so you can give a small jar to your friends, family, and even your hostess for Easter dinner, if you’re going to be a guest.

Here are all the supplies I use for this recipe; I also linked to both sizes of jars because you can give twice as many gifts if you use the smaller size:

 

 

When I’m at thrift and antique stores, I keep an eye out for small vintage silver spoons and spreaders. It’s a nice extra touch to tie one on a jar that you’re giving as a gift.

Amy and I are both traveling next week for spring break. We’ll be posting but not quite as frequently as we usually do, although I’m sure we’ll both have plenty to share about our trips after the fact.

Thanks for stopping by~

  2. Thanks Christy! For as long as I’ve been a long term follower of you and Amy, I will make this and give to friends this Easter. Thank you for sharing the recipe and for the Easter tags, which are adorable. Blessed Easter to you/Amy and respective families.

    • Julie–
      First of all, we appreciate your long-term readership and friendship! Second, I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who makes this recipe on repeat! You should definitely try the smaller jars if you give a lot of it. I know the recipe makes a bunch but this way you can really share with a lot of friends.
      Happy Easter to you and yours, as well!
      XO,
      Christy

  3. What a great idea! Thank you and blessed Easter!
