Making mustard from scratch is incredibly easy and super satisfying! After only one attempt you will understand the basic process behind the hundreds of mustards at the grocery store—and then you can make something even tastier! All you need is mustard seeds and some pantry staples. Mustard seeds can be purchased in bulk at grocery stores and spice shops, and is a staple in East Asian markets, where mustard seed has both culinary and medicinal uses. Below is a basic recipe; once you get the hang of it let your tastebuds run wild--add some dried herbs, shallots, or your favorite wintery pale ale! The mustard will be very spicy at first, but after several weeks to a month in your refrigerator, it will mellow out. Whole grain mustard has countless culinary uses: from dressings and sauces to rubs and glazes. Did we mention it makes a great gift?
