Bourbon & Brown Sugar Mustard

September, 2019

This truly might be the grainy mustard of champions. But don’t just save it for hot dogs. Add it to BBQ sauces, or use it as a glaze on grilled pork or chicken.

jar of bourbon and brown sugar mustard, with spoon, on a blue plate

3/4 cup bourbon

3/4 cup water

1 cup brown mustard seeds

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

5 tbsp dry mustard powder

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp salt (or more to taste)

In a small mixing bowl, combine the bourbon, water and mustard seeds. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to steep and absorb the liquid 5 hours or overnight.

Place the soaked seeds in a food processor, and pulse to the consistency you like. Add the vinegar, dry mustard, sugar and salt, and pulse to mix. Transfer to a medium pot, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer to thicken 3 to 5 minutes, then taste and adjust the salt to your liking. Transfer to jars, add the lids and store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
