Making Mustard Update


Yesterday morning I drained the mustard seeds and added these to all of the other ingredients. The seeds had swollen quite a bit over night so I was glad I had put in enough water.

These were all whizzed, and came together nicely. The texture was rough, more like a seeded mustard, as I couldn't process these any further. I was quite glad as I prefer a rougher texture. 

The initial taste test had me a little worried that I have wasted quite a few ingredients and a bit of time as it was very sweet from the honey. I had read in the book that the flavours calm down a little after a few days, so I popped it into the fridge to see how it might change.

I am sooo glad I did. This mustard is amazing!

The honey calmed right down and the flavour from the seeds is really strong. If you are a fan of wasabi, this is the mustard for you.

This is a keeper. I am looking forward to trying a couple of other recipes from the book.

Take care

  1. yum! I am waiting for my mustard plants to go to seed so I can try this (if I have to wait too long I will just buy some seed), its looks delicious. Any idea how long it will keep in the fridge?

    1. That would be so fabulous to use your own home-grown mustard seeds!
      In the book, it says that the mustard should last for 2 months in the fridge. I'm sure it would last longer (if you haven't eaten it all by then).
      It tastes so good.

    1. Super easy to make. I would probably just put in less honey next time.
      Real bottled beetroot = YUM.
