A few weeks ago I came across a great deal on some mustard seed at Williams-Sonoma and just the day before I had been thumbing through Home Made by Yvette Van Boven where she had a recipe for making mustard. So I grabbed the jars and took the seed home to try my hand at making my own mustard.
It was easy, cheap and seriously made me wonder why I had never done it before. In fact I will NEVER buy mustard in the store again! It is expensive and no where near as good as what you can make yourself. You can customize your ingredients any number of ways with vinegar, herbs, spices, beers and whatever else you can dream up. Just remember that whatever you make will need to rest for at least 24 hours before you eat it. Mustard is very bitter for the first few hours after making it and needs this time to rest and mellow it’s flavor.
