Still on that drive for making common food items from scratch, this week I dive into making whole grain mustards. This is certainly an easy activity as much of the work comes from mainly purchasing the ingredients. Above all else, if you’re tired of mustards that generally taste rather similar, this is a great experience to create your own unique flavors.
So give it a shot. Mustard seeds are generally cheap and can be purchased at most specialty food stores. I would not recommend trying to create your own version of the yellow mustards as they require mustard powder which is very expensive, for the amount used, and getting the flavor exactly the same is near impossible.
All it takes is some seeds, liquid, and flavors. Let’s see what you can do!
