The hardest part of the process is to grind the seeds, that's all. if you like them grainy, don't work on them too much. We normally use a mortar for small portion, which takes around 3 minutes, but for a larger amount, pulsing the seeds in a food processor or grinder works well. How to make mustard: 1. Grind the seeds (in a electrical grinder or by hand with a mortar and pestle) 2. Mix the semi-ground seeds with some salt, water (OR BEER!), stir. Let it rest for 10 minutes (can be omitted if you are in a hurry). 3. Add vinegar and stir. Optional: turmeric powder to make it yellow, something to sweeten, herbs of your choice.
