After combining ingredients, cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.
Raspberry Mustard Dip
You can buy ready-made raspberry mustard, but you won’t find the depth of flavor you get when you mix your own.
Red Beans and Rice
If you have time, make your brown rice from scratch. Use chicken broth instead of water to amp up the flavor. It will take about 45 minutes. In a pinch, instant brown rice is OK.
Red Rosemary Vinegar
To prepare as a gift, strain the vinegar into pretty bottles. Add a fresh sprig of rosemary to each.
Roast for 15 to 20 minutes (depending on thickness of asparagus), shaking once to turn spears. Pour on balsamic vinegar and serve hot or at room temperature.
