Title: Raw Mustard
Post by: TylerDurden on July 20, 2008, 06:40:18 am
It just occurred to me that one can make a raw mustard. Moutarde de Meaux is the only mustard without preservatives and could presumably be made into a raw version. The ingredients of Moutarde de Meaux are:-

Mustard Seed, Vinegar, Salt, Mustard Bran, Spices.

If anyone wants to post their own raw version using raw apple cider vinegar presumably, then that would be useful, IMO.

Mustard seed plus water! You can use ground mustard seeds or whole seeds - if whole, smash them after they are soaked. Use cold water to make  very hot mustard, warmer water to make  milder mustard. Use enough water just to make a paste. Let it set for 15 minutes before mixing it with anything else. That initial soaking is what sets the heat for your concoction.

The heat fades, so add a little vinegar or lemon juice if you want to keep it in the refrigerator, and that will hold the amount of heat in the mixture. It's the process, not the ingredients, that determine how mustard holds its flavor.

Different brands of commercial prepared mustard have different aromatic spices added, so if you want to imitate a commercial brand, use the corresponding spices.

Also, try collecting the mustard pods before they are mature or before they are dry and see if you like the taste of immature or mature "green" mustard seeds.

Hmm, I think I have all of those in the pantry right now. Might be time for a little experimenting!
Title: Raw Mustard Greens

What about using mustard greens?

I've tried juicing them and they are very hot. Like Chinese mustard.

I'll bet if you put mustard greens in the food processor you'd have something unique. It would be much hotter than mustard seed and it would be obviously green.

Perhaps some vinegar or lemon juice might keep it from going bad if you don't want to use it right away. Though that might make it too watery.

Just mustard greens on their own would spice up any dish or salad!
