    Has any one evere used ground mustard in their sausage, kielbasa, or summer sausage? What kinda flavor dose everone think it might add? Beside the obvious taste of mustard.

    Hmmm.... I like the idea. I have a qt jar of whole mustard seed I might have to experiment with.
    You just have to be careful with fresh ground mustard...a lot of it in one place can have a bitterness to it.
    It might be good in added to a rub for pork butts too...

    Leaves a little bit a tang not like fermented, but more like well not real bitter, more like well heck mustard. Go easy on how much ya use, it be a personal taste thing. I use it in my summer sausage some.

    In my mind, ground and whole mustard does not taste like the yellow stuff in the plastic bottle. Maybe if you added vinegar and salt?

    I add some of both to summer sausage. Wet your finger, touch it to the pure spice and taste it. Which is a good idea for all spices. Taste them pure. That way you get a sense for what it tastes like and can notice it.....even mixed in with the other stuff.

    In Rytek's book, he mentions that once you get a sense for what individual spices taste like, you can almost tell how much of what is in a sausage, just by tasting it (the sausage).

    We use whole mustard in our summer sausage and our bratwurst. And they turn out great.
