Note: Unsweetened cranberry juice can generally be found at Trader Joe's as well as select health food and gourmet stores.

Ingredients

  • Scant 1/4 cup (1 1/4 ounces) brown mustard seeds
  • About 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (3 3/4 ounces) mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
Instructions

1. Soak the mustard seeds: Place the mustard seeds and powder in a medium glass or ceramic bowl along with the water and cranberry juice. Set aside, covered (but not sealed airtight), for 24 hours.

2. Place the mixture in a food processor along with the salt and sugar and process for 1 to 2 minutes until the seeds are coarsely ground. Stir in the dried cranberries. This makes about 1 1/2 cups mustard.

3. The mustard may be very pungent at first. Cover and refrigerate for at least a day or two before using.
