    DIY Mustard

    Crafting your own mustard is far from a high-flying kitchen feat. Just grab some mustard seeds and good quality dark ale. Want more heat? Use more brown mustard seeds than yellow ones.

    1/2 cup (125 mL) dark beer
    1/4 cup (60 mL) black mustard seeds
    1/4 cup (60 mL) yellow mustard seeds
    1/3 cup (80 mL) cider or balsamic vinegar
    3 Tbsp (45 mL) yellow mustard powder
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) honey or pure maple syrup
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) allspice
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) sea salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper

    Combine all ingredients in glass jar and secure lid. Let mixture sit at room temperature overnight to soften seeds and allow flavours to combine.

    Transfer mixture to food processor and process until seeds are coarsely ground and mixture thickens to desired consistency. If necessary, stop machine as you blend to wipe down the sides.

    Store in refrigerator for up to several months.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
