Recently I posted a recipe for a Miso Mustard Salad Dressing and I talked a bit about how awesome of an ingredient mustard. Particularly in salad dressings, throwing some mustard in the mix is an almost sure-fire way to guarantee your dressing comes out delicious. If you like mustard of course 🙂 I have two mustards that I use in my recipes, the one I linked to in the miso mustard dressing post, and a Hot Mustard that I’m going to share with you today. I use it in all sorts of recipes that I will be sharing with you in the near future. Including this beauty below!

Whenever I post a recipe I research some of the key ingredients so I can share some nutritional information or benefits if I see fit. I suspected that mustard seeds had a bunch of health benefits, but I didn’t know much about them. Unsurprisingly, like most raw, natural, plant foods, mustard seeds boast a myriad of incredible properties, such as :
- Helping to control the symptoms of Asthma. This makes total sense now that I think about it – mustard, particularly hot mustard, often helps clear my sinuses. So it’s not so shocking that they also are beneficial to the lungs.
- Relieves Rheumatoid, Arthritic and Muscle pain.
- Mustard Oil apparently stimulates hair growth. That is an interesting one.
- Helps Rejuvenate and Heal Skin in numerous ways
Makes me want to make more of this delicious hot mustard. It’s quite a decent sized recipe, so when I made it I was eating lots of mustard and using it in a lot of recipes, so I got a bit sick of it. It’s been a while though, so methinks that after this juice fast is finished I’m going to make another batch 🙂
Or maybe make a new mustard recipe…
Since there is so much vinegar in mustard, it will last a long time. So make this hot mustard and reap the benefits of having a go to salad dressing and sauce ingredient at arm’s reach in your fridge whenever you want it.[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:68]
Makes 3 ½ cups of Hot Mustard. I have found that sometimes leaving it in the fridge for a day after making it reduces the heat a bit.
