Lemon Dill and Vermouth Mustard

Mustard fan? I hope you are because mustard is the one ingredient in cooking that can take a dish from humble to company-worthy. Why not give this Lemon Dill and Vermouth Mustard a try, you won't be sorry! 

You will find a few mustard recipes here at DIY Homemade Household, and there is a good reason for that! Commercially prepared specialty mustard like this recipe for Lemon Dill and Vermouth Mustard is often expensive. Being able to make it yourself is not only frugal but enjoyable. Homemade mustard is fairly easy to make, can include any favorite spice or essence and it makes a great gift for friends or just because you like your neighbor...

This particular mustard is great with chicken and fish. Add a touch of Lemon Dill and Vermouth Mustard to the next batch of tartar sauce the next time you serve pan-fried or deep-fried fish. Stir a spoonful into the pan drippings when frying chicken for a flavorful pan sauce to serve over your chicken, and of course, it is delicious on a sandwich of just about any variety with the exception of a PB&J! 

So, what are you waiting for, get some mustard seeds soaking...

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • white/yellow mustard seeds
  • Vermouth
  • sugar
  • salt
  • lemon juice
  • dill weed
You will also need the following:
