I think it is Col. Mustard in the Library with a Candlestick…. I couldn’t resist.
Earlier in June I read a post over at the Ethel Gloves blog about making your own stone ground mustard. Well! Mustard has been on my list of “things to make” for quite a while. You can pop over to the post over there for the recipe.
This is a simple photo-document of my process.
Starting with a combination of Yellow and Brown mustard seed- some ground, some whole seeds.
Adding in stout beer and honey. Stir to combine and then let sit for 30-minutes,
Time to add the vinegar.
I love all the texture in there. Time to put in a jar and let it set for two weeks. I think I can wait that long. I must wait that long. I need to let the flavors combine and develop.
Head over to the Ethel Gloves Blog and check out the recipe. It is very versatile. You can use wine instead of stout beer. You can use different types of vinegar. You can add seasonings…turmeric, garlic, just go with what you like. I went with the basics this first time and will go from there.
Here are a few places you can buy your mustard seeds in bulk. It is amazingly inexpensive.
Any mustard makers out there?
