Another inspiration from my weekend of country music at Farmborough was the Hill Country food – http://www.hillcountrywdc.com/
How can you resist food where the catchphrase is “Music to your mouth”. They served up their house made hot link with shiner ( beer from Texas) mustard, indeed, music to my mouth!! I had to make some shiner beer mustard, below is my version so you can serve it up at your next barbecue!
From by the bay, wishing you shiner food memories!
Homemade Beer Mustard
1 1/2 ounces yellow mustard seeds
1 1/2 ounces black mustard seeds
4 ounces beer or lager ( such as Shiner Bock)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dried yellow mustard
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup chopped white onion
Mix the mustard seeds and beer together in bowl, cover and set aside overnight. (The mustard seeds will soften and soak up most of the beer. Stir in the remaining ingredients, then blend in a food processor until nearly smooth (you may need to do this is batches). Spoon the mustard into clean jars; tap gently to remove all the air bubbles. Store in refrigerator up to 1 month.
