Let me present you my new 5-minute sweet and sour apricot mustard sauce!

There’s this fast food chain that we all know and they have a sweet-sour sauce that I used to love to eat with my french fries. I made a very similar sauce now and it is absolutely delicious with fries, roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes, and especially with my new sweet potato skillet.

I use medium mustard for this sauce. Stronger ones, like dijon mustard, I would not recommend.




  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup medium mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • a few grinds black pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons water


How to make the apricot mustard sauce

Just mix well and it’s ready. If the jam has fruit bits, it’s a good idea to use a food processor or blender. I use my mini food processor*. The sauce keeps in the fridge for about a week, probably longer.
