Grainy Maple Mustard

"This is an adaptation of a grainy honey mustard recipe I found at ... I couldn't find a recipe for a simple maple mustard anywhere, so I tried my own. To be honest, it didn't taste that great right after I finished it -- and two days out, it still wasn't winning any awards. But now I'm four days out, and it tastes GREAT -- the maple flavor isn't pronounced, but it definitely has a different flavor than honey mustards. You can make it spicier by using brown mustard seeds, or sweeter by adding more maple syrup."

Ready In:




  • Blend the mustard seeds and powder in a spice grinder or coffee mill. Blend to the consistency you want (but leave it a little grainy).
  • Mix mustard powder and seeds with water in a glass bowl and cover with a cloth. Let sit on a countertop for 24 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir flour into mustard base. Add vinegar and maple syrup and stir well. If you want a smoother texture, blend with an immersion blender.
  • Store at room temperature, tightly covered, stirring every day until it tastes the way you want it to. (I left mine out on the counter for about four days.).
  • Refrigerate. It keeps in the refrigerator for up to six months.

<p>My husband and I live in Cambridge MA with our dog Archie. <br /> <br />I used to be a mediocre cook, with little interest in cooking ... then I joined Weight Watchers in Oct. 2006. I finally realized that to maintain my weight, I needed to find lots of extremely yummy, healthy foods that I enjoyed eating -- and the best way to do that is to learn to cook, and to learn to enjoy cooking. This web site has been 95% responsible for getting me there! <br /> <br />As of Oct. 2007, I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, having lost 70 pounds and weighing less than I've ever weighed as an adult. I owe a lot of it to the recipes I've found here! <br /> <br />Re: rating recipes -- I only give out five and four stars, and very occasionally three stars. I don't see any point in giving lower scores; I can't be sure a recipe has turned out badly because of something I've done. Besides, even if I don't like it, the next person might -- and if they see a one-star review, they'll never bother to try it. So I review the ones I've loved, and don't say anything about the ones that didn't work for me. <br /> <br />Hooray for vegetables! <br /> <br />. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
