Homemade Mustard Recipe

makes 3 half-pints

I collected this recipe from Olwen Woodier, author of three cookbooks, including the Apple Cookbook, which won the R.T. French Co. Best Cookbook Tastemaker Award. Ironically, Woodier prefers her own mustard to French’s.

Ingredients 



2 ounces mustard seeds (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
1 cup white wine, or more if needed
1/2 cup wine vinegar, cider vinegar, malt vinegar, or distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon pickling or fine sea salt

1. Put the mustard seeds in a small bowl, cover with the wine, vinegar, and water, and let soak overnight.

I'm excited to try the recipe but this isn't something I would feel comfortable giving the kids because of the alcohol...does it ferment out? or is there something I could use to substitute that?
