The very easy tasty spicy brown beer mustard. It's just measuring and mixing. Only cooking part is a simmering the beer and adding the mustard seeds at the very beginning. I like a grainy mustard so the step that uses a food processor (or blender), be careful and only process until you reach your desired amount of whole graininess.
Works great as a simple dip, for that Dog at the ball game, or fine to cook with. Many times I do a mustard coating on a meat to hold seasonings and add a crust. Like this Christmas when I made a mustard/pistachio crusted Ham (but that's a post for another day (soon))! SO tasty, SO useful!
1 Bottle English Porter Style (or substitute Stout) Beer.
1/2 Cup Brown Mustard Seeds
1/2 Cup Yellow Mustard Seeds

Meanwhile, Prepare boiling water canner. Heat jars and lids in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil. Set bands aside.
- Place mustard seeds and remaining liquid in a food processor or blender. Process until chopped and slightly grainy. When you process the beer gorged seeds, the volume will expand 3 or 4 times the original
