Post 100: Homemade Mustard

Mustard. A condiment. Some of us may not particularly like it but it is a seasoning like any other.

Mustard over ketchup, for me, any day.

I wanted to get my friend Dina some mustards as a "thank you" for seeing over my house in my absence while I was away last month but when I was considering mustard varieties, I decided a better gift was making mustard together. She was excited. Her boyfriend, Joe, was even more inlined because he has culinary intuition...  

Dina, alas, does not.

So, I chose a nice grain mustard... with malt vinegar....

Whole yellow and brown mustard seeds, crushed garlic and malt vinegar are the start
