Hot ‘n Bothered Beer Mustard
« on: March 06, 2011, 08:14:30 AM »
Ok, so I'm checking the pantry and getting together the ingredients for my Hot ‘n Bothered Beer Mustard. Will get all the necessaries this week, start the seeds soaking next Friday, and make the batch on Sunday. Thought I'd share the recipe with y'all. I know most of you like good mustard, and it's pretty expensive to buy small jars of quality mustard.

Mustard is easy, really forgiving of recipe changes. The following is a good base but I change it up on impulse or vary spicing considerably. It's always good, just a bit different. These days, I always use both habaneros & fresh ground horseradish. Spices? Haven't decided yet, probably won't till I'm doing it.

The following makes a pretty good sized batch, but I'll be multiplying everything by four next week. Just make sure to have adequate small jars to put it in. Makes great gifts, always appreciated. Oh, and use it to make some vinaigrette, you won't buy salad dressing after you see how easy & delicious it is (not to mention healthy).

Hot ‘n Bothered Beer Mustard

Ingredients:
1 Cup Brown Mustard Seed
1/4  Cup Yellow Mustard Seed
1 Cup Dark Homebrewed Beer
1.5 Cup White Wine Vinegar
1 Cup Mustard Powder –combine with 1 cup water, let sit 20 min
1 Teaspoon Salt
1Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Allspice
1/4  Teaspoon Tumeric
1/4  Teaspoon Mace

Optional -
habanero and/or other peppers
fresh horse radish
whisky
??? be creative

Combine mustard seeds with beer and vinegar in a non-reactive container (stainless, ceramic, plastic). Seal, let sit 48 hours, stirring occasionally, and adding more liquid if necessary. Often needs to be topped up a bit as the seeds soak up a lot of liquid as they soften. Top with either vinegar or beer, or some whisky (use something decent, not the best or cheapest in your cabinet).
Transfer seeds and liquid to a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth, about 5 minutes. If you like grainy mustard (of course you do!), reserve some of the seeds for addition later in the processing.

That looks like a really good recipe. I am a big fan of Inglehoffer stone ground mustard and this recipe has sparked my interest as well.

Thanks for posting the recipe!

I made some mustard last weekend and it wasn't very good. This recipe looks a lot better. Thanks.

So do you have to can this if you make a lot? or is it fridge stable more or less indefinitly? (pardon the spelling this PC has no spell check!)

No, canning is not necessary. It'll keep in the fridge for a long time. That's why I'm taking the recipe I posted & multiplying all ingredients by 4 to make a huge batch. I don't like mayonaisse at all, and use ketchup only sparingly (gotta have it on fries!). So I go through a lot of mustard, plus it makes great gifts. The problem with that is once I give a jar to someone, I can pretty much count they'll be back asking for more.

Mark, do you have any thoughts on using various types of vinegar?  Cider vs. White Wine vs. etc?  A few days before your post I was contemplating this recipe and one with beer/thyme.  I ended up going with the beer/thyme recipe which is delicious, but too mellow.  I'm guessing that the additional brown seed is the lacking part of my recipe?  More experimentation to follow.  Here's a copy of the recipe I went with (no idea where it originated).  Cheers, j

1/4 cup brown mustard seeds
1/4 cup yellow mustard seeds
3/4 cup homebrewed Porter
2 Tablespoons mustard flour (mortar pestle - yellow mustard seeds)
1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt

I've only used white wine vinegar. I'm guessing that any good vinegar would work. Probably a bit different in character but no reason it shouldn't work. I like using lots of brown mustard seed, plus horseradish & habaneros. No danger of too 'mellow' then. I've varied my basic recipe a bit depending on what ingredients I had on hand. It's always come out good, but somewhat different. The recipe I posted always seems to get good response from those that try it.

I have long been a fan of the national mustard museum they have stuff that
is beyond hard to locate.  here is a link to the habanero page and I am sure
we could glean some ideas from the pages on this site.

My favorite is "Mister Mustard"....nice n spicy hot
Edit: but I see that my favorite, true to form is currently not available from them.

Edit again: I may have the last 2 jars of "Mister Mustard" on the planet....
Thanks for the recipe tumarkin

Here is northern california there is a winery called Hop Kiln that has a huge variety of mustards and pepper jellies etc in the tasting room. After a flight of nice Russian river chards and pinots you can taste all the yummy mustards on pretzles.

Hey, I've been there!  I don't remember any mustard, but the historic building was way cool.  I think its called an Oast House.

I'm resurrecting this old thread. I've been contemplating some homemade mustard, but with a less is more approach. Maybe just yellow, brown and vinegar. I do see some using mustard powder, is it somehow different than taking the seeds to dust?
