Maker's Mark Honey Mustard

Sometimes kitchen experiments turn out delicious! And this recipe for Maker's Mark Honey Mustard is proof! This is a story of frugality, or "what will I do with all those mustard seeds?"

When you get to purchase matching spice racks for your kitchen on clearance, that's a pretty good day. The spice racks were pre-filled with assorted herbs and spices, but honestly, having been bought on clearance I knew that the spice in each jar would be emptied directly into the trash. No disappointment on my part. 

Each jar was opened. The herbs and spices were given the sniff test for freshness before being emptied into the trash. All went to the trash, except for the mustard seeds, the mustard seeds still smelled pungent! When emptied, all the little jars of mustard seeds filled a small bowl. Being frugal, there was only one thing to do, make a jar of mustard to enjoy...

Mustard making is an adventure, but I always take notes along the way. That way when it turns out delicious like this batch did, I can share the recipe. And boy-o-boy, this batch was a hit! This Maker's Mark Honey Mustard is a favorite of both my husband and my son-in-law. It is delicious, and goes well anywhere mustard is invited! My guess is, you have some folks that will enjoy this mustard too...

  • mustard seeds

  • apple cider vinegar
  • salt 
  • Thyme
  • honey
You will also need the following:

  1. i love making my own mustard, and i make 2 or 3 batches per year for hubby, as he loves it on his sandwiches. i add honey and basil and sun-dried tomatoes. so satisfying isn't it to make your own?
