Whole mustard seed

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Going to run 50 lbs of SS through the smokehouse this weekend, the place I used to have do it for me used whole mustard seed in their recipe. I picked some up to add into mine and was wondering where to start on how much to add? What would be a good starting point?

I add 2 TBSP to 5 lbs of meat.

Ontay, evening.... Here is Len Poli's SS Or Beef stick recipe...

Looks like for 50#'s you would add 15 gms of seed... In some instances, folks have mentioned warming the seeds in a skillet to enhance their aroma and flavor... I guess that does something to the oils which can be a very nice addition to any recipe....

 

Good stuffin' ... Dave

I don't know if this would make a difference or not, but this is venison SS. Thought I would add that in case it matters.

I use the same as Joel, but I also heap them so probably closer to Ricks...LOL

 

believe it or not whole mustard seed is one of the reasons I decided to try and make sausage.... when I was a kid I remember all the good keilbassa around here had it in there, and then as I got older it didn't have it any more so I wanted to try and make some,

I know it is not a normal ingredient to Keilbassa, but around here every butcher shop has their own recipe it seems

I'm a big fan of mustard seed myself. My wife said to me the other day when organizing the spices "just how much mustard seed do you need anyway?!" lol

You certainly can't discount the presentation factor. biggrin.gif
