Dark Beer Mustard

Jar of dark beer mustard.


1/3 cup yellow mustard seeds

1/4 cup brown mustard seeds

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1 cup dark beer, divided

3 Tbsp. honey

1 tsp. Kosher salt

1/2 tsp. turmeric

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg


In a small bowl, cover yellow and brown mustard seeds with red wine vinegar and half the beer. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, mix together the remaining 1/2 cup of beer, honey, salt, turmeric and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Combine mustard seeds and soaking liquid with the honey mixture and purée in a blender until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate overnight before using. If the mustard is too thin, return to stove and reduce.

Use as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken, or brush on chicken during the last few minutes of grilling as a glaze. It also makes a great sandwich spread.
