What's It Wednesday #103
Thanksgiving has come and gone. Our family has a very different dinner menu. You won't find the traditional turkey and stuffing on our table. In fact, you will find fresh fish both roasted and fried, succulent lobster, delectable conch fried rice, scrumptious shrimp, and delicious stone crabs. Rumor has it that the pilgrims actually ate seafood at the first Thanksgiving. Supposedly, turkeys were no where in the vicinity of where they were. Feasting on seafood is an island tradition that we hold dear.
Needless to say, our house is the favorite Thanksgiving stopover of friends and family far and wide. Not only guest come for the food but they come for my mother's amazing mustard sauce for dipping the stone crab.
So me being me, spent the last year looking for just the right antique mustard pot and well...I found her.
During the early 18th century mustard was commonly found in your porcelain or silver castor right next to the salt and pepper.
The spoon in the mustard pot were used for dry as well as prepared mustard. These beautiful engraved pots make any table look fabulous.
However, it's my mother's mustard sauce that made the meal extra special. It's never an exact recipe but it never fails. Mustard with a little bit of sandwich spread, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and a little bit of lemon.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast. Looks like the sauce and the silver pot both cut the mustard.
What was your favorite part of your holiday feast?
Happy holidays everyone!
