Ross’s stout mustard recipe
- Cuisine: French
- Prep Time: 15 min(s)
- Cook Time: 1 hr(s)
Ross has spent years developing his mustard recipes and wanted to create a Dijon-style mustard with a little more kick, essentially blending the French and German styles. In this recipe he uses stout to create a wonderful deep flavour that creates the style of mustard served in a good pub with sausages.
Level of difficulty: medium
Season: All year round
You will need to begin this recipe 3–4 days ahead for a fuller–flavoured mustard.
Ingredients500 g mustard flour (ground mustard seeds)
575 ml stout
1.5 litres white wine vinegar
3 brown onions, sliced
5 garlic cloves, crushed
2 bay leaves
6 black peppercorns
small pinch of ground cloves (optional)
50 g salt
50 g sugar
PreparationIn a bowl, stir together the mustard flour and stout to make a paste.
In a large saucepan, combine the vinegar, onion, garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer mixture until reduced by two-thirds. Strain and leave to cool.
Stir the cooled vinegar reduction into the mustard paste. Add the salt and sugar, and stir to combine. Let the mixture stand for at least 20 minutes before transferring to a clean saucepan. Cook for 15 minutes on a low simmer. Remove from heat and cool slightly before putting into sterilised jars.
The mustard will store for up to 1 year in a cool place.
Makes about 1.5 kg
To sterilise bottles, make sure they are squeaky clean. A dishwasher will sterilise them. If handwashing, place in cool water and bring to the boil. When the water boils, the bottles are sterilised.
Although you can eat it straightaway, it’s best to let the mustard “mature” for a few days at least to get a fuller flavour.
