This recipe makes extra, so you’ll have plenty on hand. Start this recipe a week or two before you need it.

For the mustard, soak the mustard seeds in vinegar and beer overnight. Combine the mustard seeds with the remaining ingredients in a food processor and process to a coarse paste. Transfer to a sterilised jar and refrigerate at least overnight before using. While it can be eaten the next day, the mustard will be improve with a week or two of ageing.

Boil the sausages until cooked through. Lightly grill the sausages to serve (or they can be served simply boiled). Serve with the pretzels, pickles and mustard on the side.
