Sweet German-Style Mustard

1/4 cup Mustard seed
5 TBL. Mustard powder
1/2 cup Hot water
1/2 cup Cider vinegar
1 TBL. Dried onion flakes
2 TBL. Brown sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 small Garlic cloves, cut in 1/2
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Allspice
1/4 tsp. Dill seeds
1/4 tsp. Dried tarragon
2 pinch Powdered cloves
3 TBL. Honey

The night before, or at least 2 hours before: Combine seeds, powder, hot water and vinegar in a ceramic bowl.

Next day, or when ready: combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan, minus the honey. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let bubble gently for a minute. Remove from heat and let sit until thoroughly cool (45 minutes or so).

Stir in honey.

Place initial mustard mixture in work bowl of processor (or blender). Strain spice and vinegar mixture into bowl. Process until seeds are ground; this may take 3-5 minutes, with occasional scraping down.

Place mixture in double boiler and warm, stirring often, over simmering water until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Mustard will thicken further upon standing.

When cool, ladle into a clean jar and refrigerate.
