Thanks for the recipe; could you pls. tell us if we can make it without mayonnaise, because its perishable.

No, I don't know of a substitute that would work. This is for a perishable sauce.

My husband loves Honey Mustard. I'm wondering after reading the contents, if this could be made in larger quantities and canned?

Hey Donna, I am not a canner so I really can't say but I don't think I would can something that has a perishable ingredient like mayonnaise. The sauce is pretty easy to make though and keeps for several days in the fridge. Hope that helps! Thanks for visiting Southern Food and Fun!
