Give the gift of home made, whole seed mustard!
Cookies are nice to receive this time of year – especially for our family, since I really don’t do much baking. BUT. If you want to delight the taste buds of all your friends and family this holiday season – give this flavor-packed home made mustard!
Not only is this DIY mustard delicious, you will also be giving the gift of health – mustard seeds are a nutrient dense food – packed with all sorts of goodness that is anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer and anti-lots of other bad stuff.
I love the tang of this mustard – but if it is too tart for your taste buds, just increase the honey in the recipe to your liking. This mixture will be very hot and spicy at first, but will mellow – just let it sit for a few days on your counter before eating or giving as a gift.
I ordered crushed mustard seeds from Penzeys‘ and you can find cute jars at any import type store – I got mine at World Market for 99 cents each.
This mustard will keep for about two months in your fridge – so go ahead and make lots of it and stash it. It’s great for any recipe that calls for mustard – I like it in Ina Garten’s Mustard Roasted Fish. We also like to eat it as a snack – just spread on some crackers like you would a nut butter and enjoy!
Happy Healthy Holidays, Everyone!
