It is an old recipe that my great grandmother use to make and then can. It is called "Hell's Butter"...Well that's what she called it. It's like a spicy mustard. I have looked online and I can't find anything. Unfortunately when she passed the recipe was lost. I would love to make some for Christmas this year and surprise everyone. Does anyone out there have the recipe or know where I can get it?

German mustard - could this be it ? INGREDIENTS: 1/4 cup yellow mustard seed 2 Tbsp. black or brown mustard seed, heaping 1/4 cup dry mustard powder 1/2 cup water 1 1/2 cups cider vinegar 1 small onion chopped 2 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar 1 tsp. salt 2 garlic gloves, minced or pressed 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp. ground allspice 1/4 tsp. dried tarragon leaves 1/8 tsp. turmeric PREPARATION: In a small bowl, combine mustard seed and dry mustard. In a 1- to 2-quart stainless steel or nonreactive saucepan, combine remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, on medium heat until reduced by half, 10-15 minutes. Pour the mixture into the mustard mixture. Let mixture stand, covered, at room temperature for 24 hours, adding additional vinegar if necessary in order to maintain enough liquid to cover seeds. Process the seeds and mixture in a blender or food processor until pureed to the texture you like --this can take at least 3 or 4 minutes. Some prefer whole seeds remaining, others a smooth paste. The mixture will continue to thicken. If it gets too thick after a few days, stir in additional vinegar. Scrape mustard into clean, dry jars; cover tightly and age at least 3 days in the refrigerator before using. Makes about 1 1/2 -2 cups. OR THIS ONE ? Spicy Mustard Sauce Ingredients: 3 ounces package fat-free cream cheese 2 egg yolks 1 chopped onion 1 tablespoon hot mustard Salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon a vegetable bouillon cube or water A handful of your favorite herbs like basil, oregano or thyme Preparation: 1. Coat the bottom of a non-stick pan with 1 drop of oil, spread with a paper towel. Brown the onion. 2. Put the browned onion in a bowl and add the egg yolks, mustard, vegetable bouillon, and chopped fine herbs. 3. Add cream cheese and heat in a double boiler (do not boil). 4. Pour over grilled red meats or poached fish.
