cooking time varies
Senf is German for "mustard". This particular senf, known as 'Süßer Senf', has a sweet, yet sharp taste that makes it great on sandwiches and crackers. While this recipe is from a 3rd or 4th generation German American, such recipes are said to originate from the southern parts of Germany (Bavaria).
- Mix sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper together, then add water.
- Add vinegar last, as the mustard will lose some of it's flavour if vinegar is introduced too early.
- Stir using a wire whisk to prevent lumps.
- Add some water if too thick.
