Mustard is one of those condiments that sits on everyone’s table but how often does it really get used? Mustard is not only delicious on hot dogs but can be added to dressings to give potato salad or pasta salads a little zing with each bite. Some do not like the taste of mustard because it’s too spicy while other feel that mustard is not as smooth as a condiment like ketchup so it gets left out of many dishes it could ultimately improve.
Considering that you are probably looking at a bottle of mustard sitting on your table and contemplating the recipes you could add it to, consider your salad dressing. Like most, you may feel a little turned off by the thoughts of harsh mustard sitting on top of a delicious bowl of tender, delightful, bashful green lettuce. However, you couldn’t be more wrong. Mustard is going to taste great on that bowl of lettuce, just try it and see.
Mustard is not all bad though; it actually has some health benefits when consumed. For example, the mustard seed which mustard starts out as, is packed full of antioxidants which can help your immune system and keep you healthier. Like honey, mustard has both antibacterial and antifungal agents that can work with the body’s own agents to fight off conditions and disorders.
You can purchase mustard seeds and mustard paste, in it’s rawest forms, at farmer’s markets and health food stores. What you find in the condiment aisle of the supermarket is processed and broken down so when possible, use the paste or the seeds and make your own mustard.
In addition to mustard, garlic is another essential ingredient in this recipe. Garlic has many health benefits that range from being packed full of lots of nutrients and low on fats to reducing blood pressure. Anytime you can squeeze in a clove of garlic in a recipe, do it for your health.
For this recipe, you are going to combine the flavors of mustard along with garlic and kombucha. If you need the recipe for kombucha, you can find it here. Remember to allow up to ten days to prepare your kombucha for this recipe as it takes two fermentations to complete your batch of kombucha. The longer kombucha sits for the first fermentation, the more it will acquire the apple cider vinegar taste and smell that you will need for this recipe.
