I love mustard, the hotter the better. It livens up everything from sausages to pork shops, roast beef to sandwiches. Here’s how to make your own homemade fiery mustard. It’s hot stuff!
It’s time to get cracking on making those festive foodie gifts for family and friends. This homemade mustard is a great idea and takes you away from the usual sweet jams and preserves that are so popular in gift hampers.
Mustard is so simple to make
People don’t often think of making their own mustard maybe thinking there is something difficult or mysterious in making this red-hot condiment and thus preferring to just but it off the shelf in the supermarket.
But this is far from the truth, mustard is so simple to make and your homemade variety will knock spots off the shop bought stuff.
You will need a little bit of time for this recipe, 24 hours for the mustard seeds to soak in vinegar but then it is really just a case of whazzing the ingredients together and giving Mother Nature another 2 weeks to allow the flavours to really develop before you taste all this fiery mustard goodness.
Remember to sterilise your jars before use.
What type of mustrd is this?
This fiery hot homemade mustard recipe makes a wholegrain mustard. That means that the seeds still have their texture, not like Dijon mustard which is a smooth creamy mustard.
How long will homemade mustard keep?
This fiery mustard will keep for up to a year in a cool place. Once opened store in the fridge and use within a few weeks.
How to serve homemade fiery mustard
I like to use this fiery hot mustard on pork chops, with ham and salad in a sandwich and also with that good old standby melted cheese on toast.
Use homemade mustard to spread on to ham before roasting.
Add some to Greek yogurt to make a spicy dip.
Give it as a gift in an old-fashioned wire closure jar and tie on a vintage spoon as an extra little gifty touch.
