Make Your Own Mustard

There are lots of possible add-ins to mustard. One that caught my eye is horseradish. Jim and I have talked about growing horseradish next year for our beet relish – now we have another reason – and it will be a great addition to our mustard!

Ready for some DIY mustard? Here’s what you’ll need:

Homemade Mustard:

¼ cup brown mustard seeds

¼ cup yellow mustard seeds

½ cup white vinegar or white wine vinegar

¼ cup white wine

2 tbsp cider vinegar

1 tsp honey or agave nectar

1 tsp salt

½ tsp each garlic and onion powder

Soak seeds in vinegar and wine in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Remove the mixture and then add the rest of your ingredients to a food processor or strong blender; puree until it reaches your desired consistency. I like mustard that is somewhat chunky so the seeds don’t bother me – you’ll never get it completely smooth with this recipe.

Put into jars and store in refrigerator.

If you have a DIY mustard recipe of your own, please share it in the comment box. I’d also love to hear how your mustard turns out!
