This Rustic Balsamic Mustard is made from scratch – complex, spicy and a touch of sweet from the balsamic vinegar. This is not any ordinary mustard!

Prep Time:4 hours 30 minutes
Total Time:4 hours 30 minutes
1/4 cup of water
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of brown mustard seeds
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon of ground yellow mustard
Dissolve the salt and sugar in the mixture of water and balsamic vinegar in a glass container.
Whisk in the ground mustard until fully combined.
Add the brown mustard seeds and soak in the mixture for about an hour and a half to two hours.
Transfer the mixture to a small food processor or blender and blend together. There will still be some seeds visible but that’s okay – it’s “rustic”. If it’s too thick, feel free to whisk in a bit more water.
Let stand at room temperature for an hour or so until it mellows a bit and enjoy!
