Please Pass the Homemade Mustard!

There are probably more mustards available these days than French’s ever thought possible, back in the day of their neon yellow spread.

You can still buy that – in a plastic bottle of course.  But why not make your own with 5 ingredients and less than 10 minutes of your precious time?

Because you didn’t have this recipe and didn’t know how easy it is to make!



1/2 cup mustard seeds

1/3 cup red wine or apple cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic

1/3 tsp. salt

3 Tbsp. honey, or less to taste

Pour seeds into a medium size bowl.  Cover with filtered water so that the water is 3 inches higher than the seeds.  Cover.  Let sit at room temperature for 12 hours.

Drain seeds.  Combine seeds with all the remaining ingredients in blender and whiz it up until smooth.

Transfer to a glass jar with lid (I use repurposed ones from my pantry.)  Refrigerate.

It’s ready to spread the next day on your favorite sandwich, wurst, or as an ingredient in salad dressing and a million other recipes.

See how easy that was?  Bon appetit!
