I love whole grain mustard that is rather dry, not runny. I had a jar that was terrific but i could never find it again. So I decided to make my own. It is really quite simple. First I combined vinegar, brown sugar, garlic and spices and heated it until the sugar melted.
Then I mixed dry mustard with water and mustard seeds. I let the vinegar mixture cool and then mixed it into the mustard mix.
Mustard is supposed to "cure" for a month before you use it. I couldn't wait and we have used one whole jar already! It made 20 cups of mustard.
It cost about 20 dollars for all the ingredients. So my mustard cost about 1.00 for each jar compared to over 4.00 per jar at the store. And once again, it is sooooo much better than store bought.
