Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh ginger

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine mustard, brown sugar, honey, and ginger. Whisk until well blended.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
