ok, right. so. i like mustard. we all do, right?
did you know it grow all over the place?
so last year i decided to harvest some mustard growing wild and make artisanal small batch mustard, just because. i spent hours picking the pods and shucking them, which yielded me about a third of a cup of seeds.
this week i finally got around to grinding some of them to powder and soaking the rest and running the whole thing though the mortar and pestle with some honey and vinegar so now i have a teeny little jar of nice handmade mustard.
and in case you wondered: here's a history of the phrase.
