Recipe To Make Your Own Mustard! Why Not? It’s Easy.

A very good friend recently asked me to explore the spice Mustard. So, this week, I will be posting recipes that feature Mustard Seeds and ground Mustard.

The spice Mustard is one of the most commonly traded spices in the world. Mustard Seeds may be small in size, but, they are big in flavor. Their flavor profile is described as being hot and pungent. Yellow mustard seeds are less pungent than brown or black mustard seeds.

Mustard Seeds are also sold in powder form. Like most spices, Mustard Seeds and Mustard Powder should be stored in an airtight container (in a cool, dark location).

The interesting thing about the spice Mustard its flavor is not very strong until you add liquid to it. The flavor and level of heat is actually triggered by the type of liquid you add to it (water, vinegar, wine or beer). If you want to reduce the heat, add warm liquid versus cold water liquid.

Below is a recipe for a homemade Mustard. We liked it better than store-bought Mustard. It makes a great hostess gift and is a great thing to make for a party… Be sure to look out for more posts featuring Mustard…

Enjoy!
