About a week after our first experience with canning, we once again bought a ton of rhubarb for cheap and made a nice batch of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie filling… which we’ve still not made a pie from! Hopefully that will come soon.
This weekend we canned once again – starting with Beer Mustard. We’ve had this idea for awhile that we would like to make our own condiments… don’t ask why, it just sounds like a fun thing to do. Unfortunately I’m not so sure this first attempt really turned out so well. The good news is I do think it’s something we’ll try again with a different recipe. Mustard from scratch is really quite easy:
Not the greatest mustard I’ve had. Very strong. I’m hoping it mellows a bit with time… at first it was just so… vinegar-y and beer-y. Ah well, next time we know to try another type. I’m curious to try this on a burger – maybe it balances out better when there are more flavours involved.
