      This came out pretty well. The first part was fun, the mustard seeds sounded like popcorn when popping. I followed the recipe closely, and it tasted okay, but I felt like it needed a little sweetness to balance the spices and tartness of the lemon. I added a little allspice and a touch of honey. Just a personal preferrence, I guess. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag Game.
