Tired of store brand mustards? Then come make your own with this easy to follow recipe!
- 2T yellow mustard seeds
- 2T brown or black mustard seeds
- 1/4c water
- 1/4c champagne or white wine vinegar (5% or more acidity)
- 1T balsamic vinegar (You can enhance this recipe with our Oregano Balsamic.)
- pinch salt
Put all the ingredients in a jar that can be well sealed with a tight-fitting plastic lid. (Don’t use metal because the acid in the vinegar will corrode it). Shake and then set in the fridge for 2 days. As you can see from the pictures above, the seeds will absorb the liquid.
Pour into a blender and puree for a few minutes until reaching the desired level of graininess. Stir down a few times with a rubber scraper while processing. Add salt if needed. Taste it and see if you like it, otherwise set it aside for a few more days in the fridge and let it mellow and thicken. This keeps for several months in the fridge.
