  • 1/2 cup brown mustard seeds
  • 2/3 cup yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of your favorite IPA beer Sorry, you have to drink the rest!
  • 3 7-Pot peppers chopped (innards removed for a bit less heat - or, use milder peppers if these are too hot)
  • Salt to taste


Cooking Directions

  • To a large mixing bowl, add mustard seeds with vinegar and beer. Mix well. Pour into a large jar and seal.
  • Set the jar in a dry place overnight to let the seeds absorb the liquid, at least 12 hours. You will notice the seeds grow larger, but the mixture still looks like mustard seeds floating in liquid.
  • Stir in the 7-Pot peppers and salt. Mix well.
  • Add to a food processor and process to your personal tastes. You can process only a little to keep most of the seeds, or go to town and really mix it together. I processed mine to about 80 percent, keeping a few seeds in there.
  • Set the mustard into a sterilized jar and serve! The flavors will keep developing as time goes by.
  • Enjoy!
