Raw Homemade Mustard . . . DIY

When my friend gave me a jar of this mustard from the Internet (go here) I was blown away by the taste and texture. This recipe is definitely worth trying for a healthy, nutrient rich condiment that is free of extra salt and preservatives.

Raw Homemade Mustard
Yield:  5" jar

2⁄3 cup yellow mustard seeds
1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar
2⁄3 cup water

2 Tbsp fresh thyme
1.5 Tbsp fresh rosemary
Pinch chili flakes (careful this will make it hot)
1⁄3 tsp sea salt
1 tsp raw honey (animal product)
1⁄4 cup water at room temperature
  • Mix apple cider vinegar with water and add mustard seeds
  • Leave to soak for 2 to 3 days while the mustard seeds absorb almost all of the liquid
  • Add mustard mix to a blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend to a smooth consistency
  • If mixture is too thick add 2 Tbsp water at a time and continue blending until smooth
  • Spoon into a glass jar leaving no air bubbles and keep covered in fridge
  • This mustard will keep in the fridge for a few months - but is best consumed fresh - and can be added to salad dressings!
