Mustard
Ingredients:
Method:

NOTE, the darker the mustard seed the hotter the mustard. Combine mustard seed (and/or dry ground mustard), apple cider, water, and vinegar; stir to mix and soak at room temperature for 24-48 hours. Add salt to taste, optional turmeric, optional honey or sugar, and any other ingredients of your choice; place in food processor or blender and pulse to create desired consistency (mustard will thicken as it sits). Flavor develops as it ages, refrigerate 1-2 days for best flavor. Serve with pretzels as appetizer/snack. Mustard is wonderful spread on hamburger and hot dogs, used in salads, or used in your favorite grilling marinade/sauce.

Quickie Salsa
Ingredients:
Method:

Combine all Salsa ingredients in food processor (or blender) and jog or pulse to create desired consistency; taste and adjust ingredients as needed. Chill at least 1 hour to blend flavors (if you can wait). Scoop with tortilla chips or vegetables.

Guacamole
Ingredients:
Method:

Halve avocados, remove seed, mash; stir in remaining ingredients to taste. Use immediately or place plastic wrap snugly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate up to 1 hour. Place guacamole on small plate, top with cheese, onions, cilantro and/or sour cream; stir and scoop with vegetables, pretzels, or tortilla chips.

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips
Ingredients:
Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut tortillas into 6 wedges or chip shapes. Place in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheet. Very lightly, brush tortillas with melted butter, sprinkle with salt and or other seasoning. Bake 7 minutes, turn chips and continue to bake additional 9 minutes or until crisp and just beginning to brown.

Add-In's and Go With's
