Make Fig Mustard Yourself: A Delicious Recipe

Make fig mustard yourself – you need that for the recipe

Fig mustard goes well with soft cheese and is a classic in combination with goat cheese. You don’t need many ingredients for your fig mustard.

  • Of course, most of all you need figs. These should definitely be ripe. Have about 300g of the fruit ready.
  • The fruits are sweet, but there are 100g of brown sugar in the mustard.
  • Since you’re making mustard, you’ll need one to two tablespoons of powdered mustard.
  • The mustard gets its special touch from four tablespoons of balsamic vinegar.
  • In addition, the mustard preparation requires some water and salt and pepper for seasoning.
  • To fill the finished mustard, you should have a couple of clean screw-top jars ready.

How to make your own fig mustard

Once you have all the ingredients, you can get started.

  1. First, wash the figs thoroughly and then roughly chop the fruit. Then puree the fruit in the blender, adding three tablespoons of water.
  2. Boil the sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan and then stir in the pureed figs. Then turn the heat down a bit so the mush can simmer over low heat for about ten minutes.
  3. During this cooking time, stir in another five tablespoons of water and the mustard powder.
  4. Now the fig mustard has to simmer for about five more minutes at low temperature.
  5. You can then fill the jars with your homemade fig mustard and seal them.
