Notes: You can buy packaged pickled mustard seeds or make yourself.*

To make yourself, here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Yellow Mustard Seeds 
  • 2/3 Cup White Wine Vinegar
  • 1/3 Cup Water, plus extra for blanching
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • A pinch of Salt
  1. Add the mustard seeds to a small pot and cover with enough water . Bring water to a boil, fluffing periodically with a fork to avoid seeds sticking to pan, then remove it from the heat. Drain the water out by pouring the seeds into a mesh strainer and rinsing with cold water. Strain all the liquids out again and repeat this process a couple of times ( at least 6 times) to release the bitter tannins from the mustard seeds.
  2. Return the strained seeds back to the pot and add the vinegar, 1/3 cup water, sugar and pinch of salt. Bring to a gentle simmer for a few minutes. The seeds should have almost doubled in size and have a somewhat gelatinous texture. Remove from heat and let it cool. Pour into an airtight jar and chill for at least 24 hours before using.
