Mmmm...I'm not much into condiments, but there's nothing I enjoy more with some homemade German pretzels than some tangy, grainy mustard!
That's why I've been so excited to find a way to make my own! Besides being another make-it-myself healthy pantry staple, I think this version is tastier and thriftier than anything I can buy in the store.
Warning: this is not just a plain old yellow mustard like you find on stadium hot dogs, but a pungent, country-style mustard that gets better with age.
What You Need:
1/4 cup mustard seeds (yellow, brown, or a mixture) - Love these and these
1 Tablespoon dry mustard (this deal would be great to split with a friend!)
3 Tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 peeled garlic clove
What You Do:
1. Grind the seeds and dry mustard in a spice mill (find one here) or coffee grinder.(I used this)
2. Stir this mixture together with 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl, then cover and let sit overnight.
3. Blend this mixture and all the other ingredients together in a Ninja (get yours here) or food processor (like this) until smooth. Add a bit more vinegar if you'd like a creamier consistency.
4. Store in an up-cycled glass jar in the refrigerator.
I honestly enjoyed this stuff right off the bat, but it is strong and you might want to give it at least a week of curing in the refrigerator before you dive into your own batch. Try it and let me know what you think! Leave a comment here or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
