    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
    2 Tbsp + 1 tsp (45 ml) yellow mustard powder
    3 tsp (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.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
