The Art of Making Gourmet Mustard©

The Art of Making Gourmet Mustard©

By Arlene Wright-Correll

There is a big difference between what we buy off the shelves of our grocery stores and what we can make.  Not only health wise, but taste wise and also self gratification.

Some times it may be the only thing you make and you make it only once a year as Christmas or special occasion gifts. However, you make it so well you become famous for it and once in awhile it leads to a whole new business adventure for you.

One example may be making honey mustard and here is my Home Farm Herbery Easy Honey Mustard.

Ingredients:
2 tbsp. Organic Brown Mustard Seeds 

6 tbsp. Organic Yellow Mustard Seeds 
2/3 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup of water (I prefer distilled or filtered)
½ cup local honey


Directions:
Combine the mustard seeds, 1/3 cup water and vinegar in a bowl while stirring well to completely submerge the seeds.  Cover and allow soaking at room temperature for 3 days.  I usually stir or swirl the bowl every day to see the transition. On the 4th day pour the mixture into a blender, add honey and salt and blend until smooth.  Store in sealed jar and refrigerate.  Use a glass or plastic lid to keep the vinegar from corroding the metal.

Get creative y adding 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of aromatic seeds during the soaking process or adding your favorite dried herbs or powdered spices just before blending.  Then create a nice label with all the ingredients and say something like “Hand Blended Honey Mustard by “Your Name”.

You can do the same thing with Home Farm Herbery’s Oktoberfest Mustard.

Oktoberfest Mustard

This delicious tangy sweet mustard goes well with almost anything! Try it on bratwurst, smoked luncheon meats and pork!

Ingredients

1 12 oz beer (your favorite)
1 cup brown mustard seeds  
1 cup water
1/2 cup malt vinegar
1/2 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup dry mustard powder
1 tbsp horseradish powder 

Directions:

Combine beer and mustard seeds in a stainless steel saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat, cover at let stand at room temperature several hours. 

In a food processor, puree the seeds and beer until blended and well chopped. (You might want to retain a slightly grainy texture.) Return mixture to saucepan and whisk in all remaining ingredients.

Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and boil gently until, stirring frequently, until mixture is reduced by a third. (About 30 minutes) Store in a glass jar and refrigerate.


Again, in the event it is a gift put a great label on it.
 
 

Many uses for Hibiscus powder

Most people have seen fresh hibiscus flowers used as garnishes. However, hibiscus flowers have a lot more uses than that especially if you get them in powdered form. Hibiscus powder has a longer shelf life than fresh flowers and it is easily purchased online through Home Farm Herbery.    

 

Hibiscus Tarts Hibiscus powder has a sweet and tart flavor profile that reminds me of rhubarb and raspberries. That's what made me decide to use the hibiscus powder as a rhubarb compote flavor enhancer. The compote may be used to create a tart, a crisp or a turnover. I'd also suggest topping the hibiscus tarts with a hibiscus powder infused crème fraiche or mascarpone.    

Hibiscus Jam Another great way to make use of Hibiscus powder is to combine it with a raspberry or rhubarb jam. I have found that the hibiscus powder's natural red coloring really deepens the color of the jam. I'd suggest making up a large batch of hibiscus infused jam and using some of the extra jars as hostess gifts.    

Hibiscus Infused Rhubarb Pickles Want to get a little funky? Why not make rhubarb pickles with Hibiscus powder? It will add another layer to the dish's distinct flavor profile that will have your guests asking for more. Just follow your basic rhubarb pickle recipe and add in a spoonful or two of hibiscus powder. The hibiscus infused, rhubarb pickles can be eaten straight out of the jar or sprinkled on a salad made with fresh greens and goat cheese.    

Hibiscus Infused Drinks Did you know that Hibiscus powder works well when paired with various alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks? Try pairing it with such spirits as raspberry schnapps, white rum, Hpnotiq, raspberry vodka, gin and cognac. It will also blend well withCaribbean sorrels, champagne and dessert wines. When it comes to non-alcoholic beverages, try adding it to soda water, lemonade and ice tea.  It makes a great alternative instead of feeding sugar laden Kool Aid to your kids.  You might also want to use a hibiscus powder and sugar blend to rim your cocktail glasses as well to add an extra touch to margaritas and martinis.    

Hibiscus Vinegar Hibiscus powder can also be used to create a hibiscus infused vinegar or a hibiscus infused oil that can be used as a salad dressing. Simply add the hibiscus powder to the vinegar or oil of your choice. Then treat it like you would any other infused vinegar or oil. In my experience, you should let the mixture sit for two weeks before using it on your salad. That should give the oil or vinegar enough time to fully absorb the hibiscus flavor.

Hyssop Powder Organic the powerhouse of culinary herbs so place your order now.


Hyssop Powder Organic


At Home Farm Herbery we know that both the flowers and leaves are edible and you can use them like other powdered delicate herbs in pastas, and summer soups. If you grow Hyssop the flowers can be used for garnishes. We are offering our Organic Hyssop in a powder form. A few ounces will last for months with no decrease in quality when you just store your hyssop in a dark, airtight container.

Just sprinkle some in stocks and soups, along with some lemon juice. In robust braises, such as lamb shoulder, you can use it to replace some or all of the mint in a recipe, and with other strong flavors in the pot you won't even have to worry about infusion. There are some more interesting uses as well: It's sometimes combined with fresh cheeses, baked into pita bread, or added to a glaze for vegetables like carrots. It's great as a change-up from sage in your browned butter sauces for gnocchi, or anywhere you'd use sage for that matter. Hyssop is used in some Greek and Israeli cooking, and it also plays well with herbs used there.

Hyssop Powder really shines in sweets. You can infuse it  When used in small amounts, hyssop is a champion of dried herbs, as versatile as it is unique.

For best results with cooking with lemon balm powder is that it should be added at the end of cooking. They are less potent if you add them during the cooking process.

Lemon Balm Powder is a wonderful addition to fruit juices, herb butters, fruit drinks, and sorbets. It can also be used in many egg dishes, custards, a variety of soups and casseroles. Lemon Balm makes a great addition for stuffing for poultry, lamb or pork. Its subtle flavor is a perfect for sauces and marinades for fish. Lemon Balm Powder combines well with many spices including chervil, pepper, thyme, and parsley.

Lemon balm Powder is often used as a flavoring in ice cream and herbal teas, both hot and iced, often in combination with other herbs such as spearmint. It is also frequently paired with fruit dishes or candies. It can be used in fish dishes and is the key ingredient in lemon balm pesto. It has been suggested that it might be a better, healthier preservative than beta hydroxy acid in sausages
