Homemade Mustard - Worth it?

LaureltQ | Jan 19, 201208:12 PM

I will be making pretzels soon. I expect to be making these on and off for the next few months (my husband LOVES pretzels, but I've had limited success in making them in the past - they're my new planned conquest). My husband also LOVES mustard, and horseradish even more. I am happy to make my own mustard if I can find a recipe that will combine it and horseradish, and a standard recipe if it truly has a comparative advantage over storebought mustards. If homemade is SO MUCH BETTER in all or most cases, I will happily spend time time and effort making it. But if my likelihood of making something that all or most people will like (hubby is also quite picky, and I hate spending time making something that I would have liked better if I bought it) is low, then I would rather just go buy expensive boutique mustards at my local whole foods or similar.

So..... Do you have epic recipes for mustard (preferably including horseradish of some sort), or suggestions for great brands or types of mustards that I should be looking at? We go through lots of mustard in our house and if we found something that I made that was good, I'd love it. My husband LOVES my homemade bacon and sneers when people offer him "store bacon." It's cute and flattering, albeit a little elitist at times.
