#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 =)

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
