Making your own gourmet mustard mixes can be fun and interesting! The combinations are endless,delicious, aromatic and rewarding.These make great gifts which are very inexpensive to make

The basic recipe is:

3 ozs. of brown or yellow mustard seeds

1/4 c. of brown sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp. black tellicherry peppers (or cracked pepper)

1 tsp. of turmeric

7/8 cup of malt vinegar OR wine OR white vinegar

This is the fun part using your creativity..

(this recipe makes a little over a cup)

Put the mustard seeds, sugar salt, pepper, turmeric into a blender and whirl. Gradually add the liquid one tablespoon at a time. You should have a coarse paste, let this stand or rest for 20 minutes. Spoon into a clean jar,cap tightly and store in the refrigerator. This should be ready in about two weeks.

To make different gourmet mustards:

Clove Spice Mustard: add one teaspoon of cloves

Mustard Herbes De Provence:add two tablespoon of Herbs de Provence mixture

Hot Garlic Mustard: add 1 dried chili pepper and 1 clove of garlic

Horseradish Mustard: add 1/2-1 tablespoon of grated horseradish

Tarragon Mustard: add a pinch of cloves and 1 teaspoon of tarragon

Beer Mustard: use 1/2 cup of beer and 1/4 of malt vinegar instead of the 7/8 cup of malt vinegar, a pinch of ginger, cinnamon and caraway seeds.. rather interesting

Honey Mustard: add 1/4 honey instead of brown sugar. Add the 1/4 c honey and you decide how much bourbon you want in your mustard and substitute the malt vinegar.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
