Posted on March 10, 2018July 15, 2018 by jayvedasHomemade Whole Grain Mustard Recipe This is an easy, great tasting Homemade Whole Grain Mustard Recipe. Yes, condiments make everyday meals more exciting. Where would french fries be without ketchup? Burgers without relish, or even hot dogs without mustard? I am a big fan of knowing what I am eating and tend to shy away from prepared, store bought options. Mustard, and mustard seed, is an indispensable ingredient in any cook's larder. Whole, mercury-black mustard seeds, either dry roasted, or "tempered" in a hot oil with fresh curry leaves, show off their nutty character in Indian cooking and Ayurveda. Mustard seeds are a particularly good source of the mineral selenium, providing almost 15 percent of the daily value for adults as recommended by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institutes of Medicine. This trace mineral is essential to health because of its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are nutritional compounds that help prevent cellular damage from free radicals-natural byproducts of metabolism that are believed to contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Once ground, mustard seed releases its warmth, earthiness and pungency. Smooth mustard brings a kick to otherwise mild dishes. The emulsifying properties of smooth mustard make it handy in vinaigrette, or to help bring together and thicken a sauce. It's a taste thing whether you go for the yellow, English, sinus-clearing type, or the mellower European sort. Wholegrain mustard can be aggressively vinegary, so be sure you want that acid note before you add it too enthusiastically. Ingredients ½ Cup Whole Grain Mustard Seeds ¾ Cup Purified Water ¼ Cup Apple Cider Vinegar 2 Tablespoons Organic Maple Syrup or Honey 1 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder Directions Grind whole grains in a mortar and pestle until a fine consistency. Then add all contents in a jar and thoroughly shake. If you prefer a smoother consistency, you can also run the mixture through a blender.
