Today’s the day. I’m getting started on a new plan. One that involves trying new recipes. There are several items on today agenda but one of them is mustard. I’ve never made mustard before, so I figured I’d give it a go. Instead of attempting it alone I did hit up a few friends and my mom and she hit up a couple of her friends. Low and behold, no one has made it. Thankfully there is Google. It helped me with my thesis in college so it can handle a simple request like mustard recipes. The only thing I had to do was find one that sounded like it would be tasty.
I settled on Cognac Mustard from Sunset.com. It looks totally do able and all I had to do was track down the mustard seeds this morning. Totally easy! Just made a slight detour to take the girls to the dog park so they could play with their friends first. Oh, and to get my hair cut, but I digress. Back to the mustard.
- 6 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
- 2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
- 3 tablespoons cognac
- 2/3 cup white wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Put mustard seeds, 1/3 cup water, cognac, and vinegar in a bowl and stir to completely submerge seeds. Cover and let sit at room temperature 2 to 3 days.
- Whirl mustard mixture in a blender with brown sugar and salt until smooth.
So far, I’ve made it to the cover and let sit at room temperature portion. I’ll report back in a few days and let you know how it turns out. I’m really hoping it good as I’m craving soft and chewy pretzels,another thing I’ve never made, and am working on.
