Homemade Coarse Ground Mustard
- In a medium bowl combine vinegar, yellow and brown mustard seeds, salt, ginger, and allspice. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 24 hours (the seeds will absorb the liquid).
- Add honey and garlic to mustard seed mixture. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process for 1 to 2 minutes to reach desired texture and consistency (mixture will not get completely smooth), stopping to scrape down sides as necessary.
- Spoon mustard into four 4-ounce canning jars or airtight storage containers. For best flavor, chill for 1 to 2 days before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
