Cooking Ideas

Anyone can put mustard on a sandwich, so be creative and go Wild with Moosetard. Use our mustards to make a glaze for roasts and fish. Substitute it for your usual mustard in potato, noodle and egg salad dishes. Dress up your bratwurst and other sausages with your favorite flavor. Mix it with mayonnaise or cream cheese to make a tasty spread in a tortilla wrap. Even tofu dogs and garden burgers get rave reviews from non-vegetarians with a little of our mustards. Fairbanks locals enjoy it on game meats, such as moose, bison, caribou, duck and grouse.

These are some recipes from family and friends. If you find something new to cook with Moosetard let us know, we would be glad to share it with our visitors.


Moosetard Dip

  • 3 tablespoons full of your favorite Moosetard
  • 1 eight ounce bar of softened cream cheese

Mix well, then refrigerate for an hour so the flavor sets in. Serve as a dip or spread. We like to put it into sandwich wraps or spread on slices of a baguette topped with either a slice of cucumber or tomato. The Alder Smoked mustard is the most popular to use. We make it into a cheese ball during the holidays and roll it in crushed caramelized pecans. If you use the spicy mustards we recommend also adding a small can of crushed pineapple to keep the heat from dropping too much.

You can also mix shrimp and crab with chopped green onion with the cream cheese mix and stuff wontons to make Moosetard Rangoons.


Moosetard Pear/Onion and Cheese Strudel

  • 6 TB (3/4 stick) butter
  • 1 Sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 Pear, peeled, halved, cored and sliced
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan or dry Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated sharp white cheddar cheese
  • 3 tsp Moosetard (Spruce is our favorite)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 sheet frozen phyllo pastry, thawed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt 2 TB butter in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until brown, add pear and saute for another 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl and allow to cool slightly. Stir in cheese, mustard and salt. Melt remaining butter in small sauce pan or in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds on High. Place phyllo sheet on work surface. Keep remaining phyllo in a gallon Ziploc to prevent drying. Brush with melted butter then place second sheet of phyllo on top. Brush top layer with butter then arrange pear mixture along short end of phyllo in a log stopping 1 inch from ends. Fold on sides and roll up tightly into log. Brush all over with butter. Place on large baking sheet and repeat with remaining phyllo and pear mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then slice each strudel diagonally into approximately 12 pieces. This strudel can be made a day in advance and refrigerated until ready to cook.
