6 tablespoons organic yellow mustard seeds
2 tablespoons organic brown mustard seeds
1/3 cup filtered or distilled water
2/3 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup local honey
1 1/2 teaspooons fine sea salt
Combine mustard seeds, water and vinegar in a bowl, stirring to make sure the seeds are covered. Cover the bowl and leave out in a safe place to rest at room temperature for three days, giving the bowl a turn once a day to slightly stir up the contents. On the fourth day, pour the mixture into a blender, add the honey and salt and process until smooth. Store the mustard in a sealed jar in the refrigerator. Hint: If using metal lids, place a square of parchment paper or plastic wrap between the jar and lid to prevent corrosion from the vinegar.
