  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard seeds

  • 1 t. kosher salt
  • 1 t. dried spice (basil & lemon, or cardamom & fennel, or allspice & tumeric)


  • Soak the mustard seeds in the vinegar and water making sure the seeds are covered by the liquid. Leave soaking for 2 days.
  • Add the salt and spices to the seeds mixture. Start by adding about 1 tsp. of each spice. Blend mixture until it reaches desired consistency, adding water if needed.
  • When you do a tasting if you need more spice add by 1/2 teaspoons. When you are satisfied with the taste ladle into quarter pint jar and process in water bath for 15 minutes.
  • The final recipe was the jam that had been a new and crazy way to use strawberries in a savory jam. The sweetness is still very present, but the heat creeps up on your after the first bite.
