Homemade Raw Mustard

Use this very easy recipe to replace your store bought mustard made with white or wine vinegar and possibly other questionable ingredients.

Mustard seeds are very popular for their taste, but did you know they deliver a long list of health benefits due to their high content of glucosinolates?*  Mustard seeds also contain magnesium, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. And these tiny seeds are a fantastic decongestant and expectorant so mustard seed can help with respiratory disorders. 

Add this mustard to meat or fish, or use to make a delicious salad dressing.

1/2 cup organic yellow mustard seeds
1 cup raw apple cider vinegar with mother
1 red organic shallot
a few tablespoons of spring or filtered water
1 tablespoon grated organic turmeric

Soak the mustard seeds in apple cider vinegar until fully plump (12 hours). Blend everything in a high speed blender (like Vitamix).  Add water as necessary to obtain a creamy consistency. Keep in a covered glass jar in the refrigerator.

glucosinolates are natural components of many pungent plants such as mustard, cabbage, and horseradish. Glucosinolates may stimulate apoptosis (death) of human tumor cells.
