#SundaySupper: Homemade Fennel-Maple Mustard {Unprocessed}




When DB, AKA the Foodie Stuntman who blogs at Crazy Foodie Stunts, announced the theme for this week's #SundaySupper, I was inspired. I had already taken a modified pledge for October #Unprocessed, so this wasn't a stretch. But I wanted to try something completely new to me. So, I decided to make my own mustard.

We have made Homemade Mayonnaise and Homemade Ketchup. I figured it was about time to tackle Homemade Mustard. Here goes...

One note: I initially thought this would be an herb-heavy mustard. But as I was blending it, I opted to add in just maple syrup and fennel seeds. It's still a pretty strong blend. I will have to try to make it less pungent next time. So, this is exactly what I did. Cooks and eaters beware; it's potent stuff.

Ingredients
  • 2/3 C brown mustard seeds
  • 1/2 C organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 C water
  • 1 t fennel seeds
  • 1/2 t ground turmeric
  • 1/2 t red chili flakes
  • 1 T sea salt
  • 2 T organic maple syrup

Procedure
Mix apple cider vinegar with water and add mustard seeds. Leave to soak for 3 days.


Add mustard mix to a blender. Add in the rest of the ingredients,


Pulse and blend until you get the consistency that you want. If you think it’s too thick, add water a tablespoon at a time and continue to blend until you get it smooth.


 Spoon into jars. Cover. Store in the refrigerator.

  1. Potent mustard sounds good to me. A little will go a long way. I'll have to try this one.

    1. That is true, but this almost had that pungent wasabi quality. A very little bit would go a long, long way!

  5. Yep. I agree with the addition of the maple to balance out the flavors. I've never made my own mustard so now I'll have to try.

    1. You definitely should, DB. I am wondering about my using brown mustard seeds instead of yellow. Maybe the yellow is more mellow. I'll have to test it out.

  8. How fun! I will have to try this - I bet the maple syrup adds a nice layer of sweetness to the mustard.

  9. Tumeric tempered with maple syrup looks to be a mighty blend indeed! Mustard - whether its Dijon or Asian or Camilla's special creation is a welcome topping to any potato in the Ninja kitchen =)
