Nothing in my garden is quite ready and I'm getting anxious to refill some of my poor empty jars that I lovingly emptied over the winter. I'm looking at making some mustards in anticipation of the perfectly grilled hotdog.
I think I will be trying the Oktoberfest Beer Mustard from the Ball Complete Book (pg 274) anybody have any experience with this one?
Also, I find a recipe for honey mustard but the person didn't cite their source. Any thoughts on the recipe in terms of safety? I've seen some HORRIBLE websites out there!!
Homemade Honey Mustard
1/2 cup yellow mustard seeds
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 cup honey (we only used 1/2 as much)
Soak the mustard seeds in the vinegar and water, making sure the seeds are covered by the liquid. Leave soaking for 2 days.
Add the sugar and honey to the seeds mixture. Blend mixture until it reaches desired consistency, adding water if needed. Ladle into quarter pint jar and process in water bath for 15 minutes. The mustard will at first seem extremely spicy, but will mellow out after about a week.
