Another gourmet mustard – that is as flavorful as it is fun to make! This recipe can use green or pink peppercorns, with some alternative ingredients noted as well.
- In a glass container, combine mustard seeds with sherry and vinegar. Allow to sit 48 hours with the liquid covering the mustard seeds.
- Transfer the seeds and liquid to a food processor (or blender) and combine with the remaining ingredients. Process until mixture becomes creamy, 4-6 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.
- Store mustard in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least 1 week (up to one month) before serving, allowing the flavors to develop.
Makes a nice gift for anyone who appreciates splendid flavors. Keeps up to 1 month.
