You may have noticed that mustard comes up often as an ingredient for other sauces. Well, you might as well make your own so you don't end up dropping hundos on the easy-to-make condiment. Mustard is my favorite, but it's not the king of condiments.

It's time for beer-thyme mustard! It's easy to make, but it'll take a few weeks to get it just right. But believe me, once the thyme is infused into the mustard, you'll be making your next batch to make sure you have some when the first batch runs out!

Seriously. If I knew it was this easy to make, I would have done it years ago. All you need are olives, garlic, lemon and orange juice, balsamic vinegar and some spices. I'm making this when I get home and downing it in one sitting. I'll probably do this with number five too.
