So, I decided to try making homemade mustard. It started out as a random thing, I ran across a recipe for a Dijon mustard and started asking hubby about the mustard he eats. Cause I don’t care for it. Now he usually eats Spicy Brown, but remembered seeing a Good Eats episode where Alton made a mustard recipe that he thought sounded good. So I dug out the recipe.
And then the modifications began. Hubby DOES NOT LIKE sweet pickles, so he asked me to find a substitute for that. Well, someone in the recipe comments had used white wine vinegar, so I said sure. Then I got started and discovered I was out of apple cider vinegar. A google search said that red wine vinegar was an acceptable substitute just not as sweet. So ok.
In the end I followed Alton’s recipe except for swapping out those two items (I did not add any extra sugar). Hubby says its damn close to spicy brown and he loves it. I guess I’m making mustard! It turned out really easy to do, and not really time consuming, so I don’t mind.
(several of the commenters/reviewers complained about it being to liquid, but as another commenter pointed out you just keep heating it till its reduced to the consistancy you want, though I may try reducing the liquid just a bit next time)
