#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!

  4. I'd never thought about making my own mustard, but yours looks to die for! What a great recipe!

  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 =)

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
