It's Fermentation Friday!! Who am I kidding, I've always got something going! But this week I tried something new. Homemade Dijon Mustard. It was so easy and came out delicious. With grocery prices increasing a bottle of dijon mustard is typically $2.99-$12.00 but you can make 3 times the amount for less than $5. Plus, it's fermented which includes health benefits that cannot be found in store bought mustard.
1/4 cup of brown mustard seeds
1/4 cup of yellow mustard seeds
2 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup of filtered water
2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of whey (click here for homemade whey recipe)
Juice of a small lemon
I let the seeds soak overnight and then drained them. Soaking seeds, nuts and grains before cooking allows for the production of numerous beneficial enzymes which contain many vitamins. The soaking process also breaks down difficult to digest proteins into simpler components which are easier for the body to absorb.
Add all the ingredients into the food processor or blender and blend. Pour the mixture into a bottle, and cover with paper towel or cheesecloth and a rubber band. Let it sit on your counter for 3 days. You will begin to see bubbles in the mixture and will see a yellowish liquid at the bottom of the mixture within 24 hours. Give yourself a high-five! Your mustard is making beneficial probiotics to boost the immune system and balance the body! After the 3rd day you can remove the paper towel/cheesecloth and mixup the mustard, place in the fridge and -Viola! You have homemade dijon mustard! So simple!
I would love to hear if you try this recipe and your comments on it!
