Spicy Mustard (Senape Piccante)
Recipe type: Accompaniments
Serves: 3 pints
  • 1 Cup brown mustard seeds
  • 1 Cup yellow mustard seeds
  • 2 Cups red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 6 sterilized 1/2-pint jars
  1. Put the mustard seeds in a large noncorrosive bowl and pour the vinegar over them. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let the seeds soak for 2 days. As they do, they will absorb the vinegar.
  2. Transfer the mustard seeds to a food processor. Add the honey, salt, and allspice and pulse until a grainy paste if formed. If you want a smoother texture, pulse longer.
  3. Fill the jars with the mustard. Place a round of wax paper slightly larger than the jar opening over the top of each one and cap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
This recipe yields 3 pints.
