MUSTARD YOU CAN MAKE YOURSELF

 

 

It’s lovely to give gifts you make yourself.   It’s even lovelier to receive them.      I make an olive tapanade that is divine.  The recipe calls for whole-grain mustard.  When our supermarket was out of it one day I decided it was time to make my own.   This recipe for  WHOLE-GRAIN HONEY MUSTARD  is as good or better than any to be found on the grocery shelves.  It is easy, easy to make  and your mustard loving friends will be begging you to share the recipe.   It’s wonderful with grilled meats, and it turns a ham sandwich into something the Earl of Sandwich would be proud of.   Decorate your jar tops and give this gourmet condiment for Christmas  gifts.

WHOLE-GRAIN HONEY MUSTARD (makes about 3 cups)

1 cup yellow mustard seed

1 cup black or brown mustard seed

1 1/4 cups white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1 six-inch-long cinnamon stick (broken into a few pieces)

1/4 cup liquid honey

1 teaspoon sea salt

 

 

In a bowl, mix together the mustard seed, white wine vinegar, crushed red pepper and the cinnamon sticks.

Cover and set aside at room temperature for a day and a half.

 

 

Remove and discard the cinnamon stick.  Add the honey and salt  and mix well.

Using mortar and pestle (you’ll have to work hard) or food processor, blend the mixture to a thick paste.

Stop the food processor and push down the mixture several times as this mixture tends to cling to the walls of the food processor.

 

Spoon into sterilized jars and let rest for at least a week before enjoying.

      Lisa you can take out the honey. When you are processing the mustard seeds add a little extra red pepper flakes and a generous teaspoon of dry mustard. I promise you it will be hot enough to warm the coldest Saskatchewan day. Virginia
