Other People’s Preserve is my opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the very delicious jams, pickles, and preserves being made by dedicated professional canners. If you see one of these products out in the wild, consider picking up a jar!
This week’s featured preserve is the Lemon Sage Mustard from M. Greenwood Jams. I discovered this brightly flavored, seriously savory mustard thanks to the kind folks at Garibaldi Goods. They are an online shop based Southern California that features the small batch, artisanal products and preserves that are made in California.
M. Greenwood Jams is a mother and daughter preserving team based in Los Angeles. They make small batches of seasonal preserves, using locally sourced produce (and there’s no place better than California for freshness and variety. I get jealous every time I’m out there).
What I find so nice about this mustard is that it has none of the bitterness that you often get from really grainy mustards. The seeds are tender and flavorful, and the lemon and sage compliment the natural mustard flavor. It’s one that I’d put out with a cheeseboard or eat with leftover roast chicken.
Disclosure: The folks at Garibaldi Goods sent me this jar of mustard for sampling and photography purposes. However, I meant every word of what I said about it.
