I've been thinking about that old mustard thread lately. I found a jar in the back of the fridge with about an 1" of the last batch from last Fall in it. It's kind of watery and got me thinking I need to check out the new Indian market at the end of the street.
Luckily next week is Spring Break and I have the week off.
I feel the same way about these food threads as Corky. My wife will shoot me and order that chipper shredder if I pick up anymore "foodie" habits. I haven't pulled the trigger on cheese making yet because I'd like to see my kids grow up.
I think of cheesemaking as a "filler" hobby - something to do if I don't have time for a full brew day, or if I want to mix things up a bit. It doesn't stink up the house, either, so the wife doesn't give me as much of a hard time about it. I can certainly see where it could get addictive, though.
Back to mustard - anyone ever grow their own seed? I've been meaning to dabble in making stone-ground mustard, but just haven't gotten around to it. It would be really cool DIY to use your own beer AND own seeds.
