Homemade Grainy Beer Mustard

Marc and I love mustards whether spicy or sweet, with beer, honey, grainy we love to sample them. We are known to cruise specialty sections of stores and one of the many things we look for are the mustards.

We wanted to try making a grainy honey beer mustard similar to the one we had purchased recently. On Friday night we put together the ingredients that were to sit for 24 hours.....

On Saturday we started mixing it with a Braun hand processor. We discovered it wasn't breaking downt he mustard seeds completely so we finished it off with a blender. I don't have a picture of what the mixture looked like before we starting mixing it. We didn't think it would thicken it was still so loose. But it really did. This picture shows using the Braun mixer.

We steralized 2 jars (and one baby jar) and it was enough to fill them all.

On Sunday morning I put some on Canadian peameal bacon on a toasted english muffin. The mustard was so yummy.


Should you be interested in making your own, which is a very easy process the recipe is here.

This recipe didn't call for honey and unfortunately I didn't realize I didn't have honey until it was too late. To the recipe we actually added about 1/2 cup more brown sugar alternately with more apple cider vinegar as well because it needed to be sweeter. The vinegar helped thin it out after each addition of brown sugar.

Next time we'll try it without the beer and with honey. We decided to use a hot dry mustard in our recipe. Its fun to make because you can change up the ingredients.

We decided this mustard will taste wonderful on bratwurst type sausages or delicious salami sandwiches.

Do you make mustard? Have a great day... Judi xoxo

I've never even thought about making mustard, but it'd be fun to try.

Have a great week, Judi.

I've never made mustard--like Sally, I've never even thought about making it. At our home, we usually have at least 2 or 3 different kinds of mustard in the fridge.

Hope you have a good Monday :-)

Hi Judi
I enjoyed catching up with you today. The quilt you made is GORGEOUS. Quilting is something I really want to try one day.
I was interested to read how you made the mustard. I am not a fan of mustard but my husband is. I wouldn't have known where to start with making it. It looks good anyway.
