Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard seeds
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar plus ¼ cup + more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey or sugar or more for more sweet and less bitter
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Rinse the mustard seeds with water through a sieve or through a cheese cloth.
  2. Add the rinsed seeds, 3/4 cup of the apple cider vinegar, and salt to a small bowl and soak for two hours at room temperature.
  3. Add the soaked mustard seeds to a small pot. Stir in the honey or sugar, red pepper flakes and black pepper. Bring to a quick boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup vinegar and transfer to a sealable jar or container. Keep in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

Pickled mustard seeds will last several months refrigerated. If the seeds dry out or become too thick, as they will continue to absorb the liquid, simply swirl in a bit more vinegar to keep them moist.
