Recently I made some beer mustard. I had to halve the batch because I didn’t have enough mustard seeds.
I had 2 of those small containers that they sell at the grocery store and it barely measured a 1/2 cup. I still had to put the same amount of effort into making the mustard but I didn’t get nearly enough, and it was a bummer.
Today I went and got bulk mustard seeds. I filled a sandwich bag 2/3 of the way full and only had to pay two bucks and change. Plus they were organic. Each tiny container at the store cost over two dollars.
So now I just need to narrow down my options for which mustards I want to make next.
Friendly reminder….buy bulk whenever you can. Overpaying for a silly container just isn’t worth it. The worst part is I already knew this, but was just being lazy and picked up the seeds on my weekly trip to the store.
It’s always good to get a kick in the pants every so often.
