German-Style Mustard



6 servings



1/4 cup yellow mustard seed
2 to 2-1/2 tbsp. black or
brown mustard seed
1/4 cup dry mustard
1/2 cup water
1-1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 sm. onion, chopped
2 tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 cloves garlic, minced or
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. dried tarragon leaves
1/8 tsp. turmeric


In a small bowl, combine mustard seed and dry mustard. In a 1- to 2-quart non-aluminum pan; combine remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered on medium heat until reduced by half; 10-15 minutes. Pour the mixture into the mustard mixture. Let mixture soak at room temperature 24 to 48 hours, adding additional vinegar if necessary in order to maintain enough liquid to cover seeds. Process the seeds and mixture in a blender or food processor until puréed to the texture you like (this can take at least 3 or 4 minutes). Some prefer whole seeds remaining, others a smooth paste. The mixture will thicken considerably upon standing. If it gets too thick after a few days, stir in additional vinegar. Scrape mustard into clean, dry jars. Cover tightly and age at least 3 days.
