Mustard is one of my hubby's favorite condiments...and it's one of my favorite things to make! I've been making it for about five years now. In fact, I remember a lightbulb going off when I learned it was something I could make! Check out my first mustard making post here. Obviously, my ingredients and method have changed slightly, but one thing I love about mustard-making is that it's so forgiving!
How I did it:
To make this batch, I dumped a jar of Adante yellow mustard seeds in a Weck jar (I am loving these & am planning a jar review soon)! I had a tiny bit of brown mustard seeds left so I threw those in too. They are SO much spicier than yellow mustard seeds. I let them sit in the jaw with apple cider vinegar for about 8 weeks. This is part of the forgiveness of mustard I was referring to. Sometimes I let it sit for a few days before making, but I have also let it go a few months. With this one, my goal was actually to make it sooner, but I couldn't find it in the fridge...I knew it was in there, somewhere! Anyways, when I finally found the jar, I made it!
- Then, I blended it up really well.
- I gave it a few taste tests (yes, I get a new spoon each time -- if you've ever seen my silverware drawer empty, you know this is true lol). I may add a little more salt or honey depending on what I'm looking for, but this batch was pretty on point! I washed the jar it had been steeping in from the fridge, and then after blending I poured it back in the same jar and refrigerated it for my hubby to enjoy. I really like dipping sausages in my homemade mustard, it's delicious!
