The most easiest and quickest recipe yet. This knock your socks off tasty mustard that will have you making this more than once!
6 tablespoons mustard seeds, use a mix of brown and yellow or just use yellow
1/2 cup mustard powder,
Ingredients (or water or wine!)
3 tablespoons vinegar (cider, white wine, or sherry)
tsp sea salt
1 teaspoon ground turmeric (optional)
2 tablespoons honey (optional)
1/4 cup minced fresh herbs (optional)
Grind the whole mustard seeds for a few seconds in a spice or coffee grinder, or by hand with a mortar and pestle. You want them mostly whole because you are using mustard powder, too.
Pour the semi-ground seeds into a bowl and add the salt and mustard powder.
Pour in the beer, then stir well. When everything is incorporated, let this sit for up to 10 minutes. The longer you let it sit, the mellower the mustard will be. When you’re ready, pour in the vinegar. Add in one of the optional ingredients too.
Pour into a glass jar and store in the fridge. It will be runny at first. Don’t worry, it will thicken up overnight. Wait at least 12 hours before using. Mustard made this way will last a year in the fridge.
The most important thing to making mustard at home is to wait. You cannot eat it the day you make it. Mustard needs to marinate to dissipate its bitterness.
