Make your own Mustard - Plain Jane

This is my first attempt at mustard.  It's a little hot, so you may want to add the cayenne and flakes 1/2 tsp at a time.   I also poured in a bit of honey after I blended the ingredients in an attempt to take some of the heat off. 

Ingredients:
1/2 cup yellow mustard seeds
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Hot Pepper Flakes

Directions:

Cover the mustard seeds in the vinegar and water, making sure the seeds are covered by the liquid.
Add the sugar and spices to the seeds mixture.
Let soak for 2 days. 
Blend mixture until it reaches desired consistency, adding water if needed.

This made (2) 1/2 pint jars of mustard.

Stay hungry my friend.
