2 medium jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined and minced

1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/3 cup red onion, chopped

1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

1/4 to 1/3 cup OLIVE & VINE white balsamic vinegar such as Cranberry Pear, Peach Mist, Tropical Mango, or Pink Grapefruit.

Homemade Mustard

One of the primary ingredients in mustard is vinegar, so the quality of the vinegar makes a huge difference in the final outcome. Try some of our favorite flavors in this recipe or experiment with your own! 

1 cup ground yellow mustard seed

2/3 cup vinegar (OLIVE & VINE Sherry Reserva, Vermont Maple Syrup, French Champagne, Serrano Honey, Jalapeno Piquant, Savory Oregano, Peach Mist, Honey Spiked Ginger, Traditional Balsamic Condimento) 

1/3 cup honey (omit this if you are using a sweeter vinegar such as Peach Mist balsamic)

1 teaspoon sea salt

 

Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium to medium-low heat for approximately six minutes.  Stir frequently until it thickens and then remove from heat.  Allow the mustard to cool before storing in an air-tight container. 

If you like your mustard spicy, you can refrigerate it at this point which will preserve its fiery characteristic.  If you prefer a more mellow flavor, allow it to sit at room temperature for a day or so before refrigerating.

Makes about 1-1/2 cups.

 

You can also experiment with adding herbs, infused sea salts, wine, chillies, peppercorns, horseradish, and on and on.  The possibilities here are endless!

Use as a condiment or to emulsify a great vinaigrette or marinade.
