Easy Mustard Recipe

I never thought I’d attempt homemade mustard, but when I realized just how simple it is to make — and that mustard seeds are sold in bulk at my local co-op — I was a convert. Like all homemade condiments, mustard allows for endless variations and flavors to suit individual tastes. Using different vinegars will give the mustard a sharper (white distilled) or milder (malt or wine) flavor. You can also substitute honey or agave nectar for the maple syrup for a different flavor note, or add 2 teaspoons of your favorite dried herbs while blending.

Yields 1 pint

1/2 cup yellow mustard seeds
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
4 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh, finely ground black pepper

Combine mustard seeds, wine, vinegar and water in medium bowl. Let stand overnight.
