Homemade Lacto-fermented Honey Dijon Mustard!

Happy 4th of July to ya'll out there in blog land. We just had some tasty hot dogs and sausage dogs served with homemade mustard and homemade lacto-fermented ketchup. We served them on a table set with news paper pages for each place mat/plate. I didn't want to spend all of my 4th cleaning more dishes. I just loved how it brought inside a feeling of picnic since the outside is super hot where we live. The guys and Zoi were outside this morning working on beautifying the yard so they were ready to stay indoors.

Homemade Honey Dijon Mustard
(warning this stuff is hot!)

1/2 cup of powdered mustard
3 table spoons of dill or more if it is fresh
3 table spoons of whey
3 table spoons of honey
1 tsp. of sea salt

Mix up all of the ingredients and set on the counter top to ferment for a day then transfer it to your refrigerator. Spoon on your condiment or transfer to a squeeze bottle.

Have you tried making your own mustard?

This recipe was a little too spicy so I added a little regular yellow mustard from the store. Please comment and let me know if you could suggest anything else I could add to it to lessen the heat.

Thats pretty awesome. I would have never thought to make your own mustard. And I love spicy foods and mustard. The spicier the better for me so I may have to give this a try!!!

This is pretty cool. But I'm the only one who uses mustard in our home and then only very seldom. But I love the idea. Coming from Home Focused Friday link-up.

I am hosting my own link-up today called Loving Our Children. I'd love to have you come on over and share a post!
