A spicy, sweet mustard is the perfect compliment to the flavor of this ham. As it turns out, the company that offers the perfect ham is not the company that makes the best mustard to go with it.
Since I was ordering the spiral cut ham from Harrington of Vermont I ordered their mustard. That was a mistake. It was bland and totally uninteresting. Mustard is a condiment that needs to add a layer of flavor to complement the ham. This one did not.
I found two mustards that were perfect! —Olde Cape Cod Sweet Hot Honey Mustard and Maille Honey
Maille Sweet Mustard – is slightly spicier and less sweet then the Olde Cape Cod brand, yet the balance of flavors is perfect. If you like a sharper taste, this is the mustard for you. It complements the ham without overpowering it in any way.
I found myself making little sandwiches with the fresh baked biscuits, lots of mustard and a little ham. They were so delicious that our daughter has already put in her order for a repeat performance. I can imagine it would also be wonderful on black bread with a good commercial ham.
Both of these mustards are excellent and worth having in your refrigerator. I would happily use either.
