Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

Honey Dijon Vinaigrette

Ingredients:
1/2 cup good olive oil
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 heaping tablespoon dijon mustard (the smooth or grainy kind)
3 tablespoons (or to taste) wildflower or clover honey
Red pepper flakes to taste (I used about 1/4 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon fresh tarragon leaves, roughly chopped (if using dry use 1/2 teaspoon)
Salt to taste (about 1/8 teaspoon)

Directions:
Make the vinaigrette: you can either put all the ingredients into a measuring cup or bowl and whisk them, or you can put them all in a small jar (but not one that is so small that the ingredients fill it—you need to have empty space in the jar so there is room to agitate the ingredients properly) screw the lid on tightly and shake like the dickens. A blender also does the job quickly.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
