Sweet and Sour Mustard Sauce

This creamy sauce is a delicious accompaniment with ham. It makes ham just a little more fancy. The recipe comes from a former neighbor, Becky Ririe.

2 cups whipping cream
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
4 teaspoons dry mustard
1/2 cup vinegar

Blend the cream and egg yolks together and set aside. Combine sugar, flour, and dry mustard in the top portion of a double boiler over boiling water. Gradually add the cream mixture, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened. Gradually stir in the vinegar. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
