But I digress....
A couple thoughts, try to get your mustard seed from a small market and not in the cute little jar that costs an arm and a leg.
1/2 cup whole mustard seed
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 heaping tsp ground mustard
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup vinegar ( I used cider vinegar)
a squirt of honey
Grind the mustard seed coarsely. I used a coffee grinder I use for spices.
Combine the ground seed, the mustard powder and the turmeric.
Combine the water and vinegar. Add to the dry ingredients, add a squirt of honey and stir well to combine.
It may seem a little too wet, but the seed will absorb the moisture as it rests.
Give it a taste, it is pretty darn hot right now but should mellow after a day or two in the fridge.
That's it. Simple huh?
Now back to dreaming about that sandwich.....
I did add another squirt of honey and whizzed it in the food processor after 3 days. It has mellowed and is quite delicious!
Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging!
