Kalona SuperNatural milk which Natural Grocers sells, is not UHT and I have been using it for cheese and it works well.

Yep that is really nice milk!! REALLY nice.

But it is not raw. Nor does it behave like raw in certain recipes.
And it does not have the extra health benefits of raw milk.

If I were to make mozzarella without raw milk, I would use Kalona. For sure.

I bless them for providing a low temperature alternative.


So what type of cheeses do you make mummydog? Maybe we should start a cheese making thread....

My plans for today got changed.
So I made 2 small quick batches of mustard!!!
I decided to go for full heat. I figure if it's too hot for me I can always make a milder batch later to tone it down.

I'll let you know tomorrow how they turned out.

I still plan to soak some seeds Friday night, to make another batch Saturday morning. Then I'll fix bratwurst on Sunday for the game and try it out!



(Hey mummydog, do you want to start a cheese making thread and share your experience?)

Can I get a drum roll for a taste test ... :rockband:

Image

On the left a grainy brown mustard ... on right a yellow ball park mustard

Let's start with the brown mustard

Looks pretty good
taste, taste... mmmmmm good flavor!!! a tad bitter but not too bad
taste, taste... oh geez kinda hot... yep pretty darn hot 8O
taste, taste... very crunchy texture, a bit too crunchy for me
... an immersion blender might fix that (and a presoak may be better)

Ingredients
2 Tbs yellow mustard seeds
~1/2 Tbs black mustard seed
1/3 cup mustard powder
1/3 cup cold water
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
heaping tsp honey
1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Okay, now the yellow mustard

Doesn't look so good, too watery and not very smooth
Taste, taste ... oh no, no, no that is horrible on every level :barf:
completely awful VERY bitter, grainy, hotter than Hades
Nothing will fix this, down the drain it will go

I bought my ground mustard powder (organic) from Natural Grocers. It's not very smooth. I usually buy my mustard powder and seeds from Mountain Rose herbs. I wonder if that makes a difference?

I'll try a presoak and immersion blender this weekend on a new batch of brown mustard

Thanks
I love mustard too :love:
I use lots and lots of it! Mustard sauces are one of my favs for eggs, veggies, meat, fish.
That's why I'd like to make it myself. Once I get better at a basic recipe, then I can start making variations.

I can just imagine having 3 or 4 homemade mustards in the frig at any one time. Heaven!

I doubt I'll ever be a "master mustard maker" but I hope I can get pretty good at it. Like any new recipe you gotta make it many times in order to perfect it.

Mustard update!

I took the above brown mustard and hit it with the immersion blender. Then put it in a water bath for 20 minutes (as if I were canning it).

Wowza! What an improvement! Better texture for sure and took heat down just a tad. It's still a bit spicier than perfect for me, but it will be awesome for making sauces.

I'm looking forward to the next batch.

A new batch of brown mustard is underway :multi:
After soaking 24hr, I blended everything together this morning.
First taste is very promising!!!!!!

I let the mixture sit for 20 minutes before adding the vinegar.
(ECG is probably thinking, "Bummer, so far past peak". But I'm saying, "Ahhhh! That's better!" ) It's still quite spicy, much more so than most commercial brown mustards. But within my range of whats enjoyable.

Now another 24 hr rest to allow the flavors to fully develop and hope it thickens.
