I love giving and receiving homemade gifts! There are many ideas you can use to give food gifts. One idea is making your own mustard. It is so easy and you can make up a basket with a loaf of fresh rye bread, some cheese, a few bottles of beer and your own mustard. Makes a wonderful gift.

Several years ago a friend of mine gave me a gift of her homemade mustard. In the package was a jar of mustard, a tiny whisk and the recipe! Today I share it with you.
