Hard Cider Mustard

October 23, 2017

One of my favorite pantry items is mustard.  It is so versatile and used in many different ways.  I use it when I make salad dressings; marinades; rubs; just to name a few.  So... I have always wanted to make my own.  And, guess what?  Super easy to do!! Some of my girlfriends like to get together to do a progressive dinner.  Our theme was "cider" and "fall squash".  I made this hard cider mustard using a local cider from Climb Hard Cider in Loveland, CO.  http://www.climbhardcider.com/  Check them out!  I used their cranberry hard cider and it was delicious to sip while I was making this.  The mustard was an accompaniment to the hard cider braised beef I made as well, I'll blog about that at a later date!




 Hard Cider Mustard Recipe

Yield:  1 cup mustard


2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds

2 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds

1 tablespoon ground yellow mustard

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1/2 cup hard apple cider (I used cranberry hard cider from Climb Hard Cider)

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon brown sugar



Soak the mustard seeds and powder in a medium glass or ceramic bowl or container.  Mix in the cider vinegar and the hard cider.  Set aside, slightly covered but not air tight, for 24 hours.  


Using a mortal and pestle, grind the mustard seeds along with the salt and sugar.  Grind to your desired consistency.  Optional:  You can finely chop a crisp apple to add to the mustard at this stage.  


Cover and refrigerate for a few days.  It will be very strong at first, but will mellow as it sits.
