Grow in God's Grace with Mustard Seed Faith

"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20

Incredibly, a single minuscule mustard seed can grow into a massive tree measuring 20 feet both tall and wide.  The mustard seed reminds us that time and time again God creates great strength from the most humble beginnings.  We can take comfort during moments when we feel small and inadequate, that we can confidently rely on the everlasting power of God's words and promises to strengthen and uplift us during the darkest of trials.  Looking for a gentle reminder to keep the faith?  Find a bit of inspiration our collection of mustard seed pocket reminders, key-rings, jewelry, and tees.  We've pictured a few of our favorites below.  Read on and you'll also find a recipe for homemade mustard.  Let us know how it turns out and next week we'll give you a few tips on mustard stain removal laundry solutions!

Homemade Mustard Recipe

1/4 cup dry mustard powder
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup sweet pickle juice
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup mustard seed

In a small, microwave-proof bowl whisk together the dry mustard, brown sugar, salt, turmeric, paprika and garlic powder. In a separate container, combine the pickle juice, water and cider vinegar and have standing by. Place the mustard seed into a spice grinder and grind for a minimum of 1 minute, stopping to pulse occasionally. Once ground, immediately add the mustard to the bowl with the dry ingredients and add the liquid mixture. Whisk to combine. Place the bowl into the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and puree with a stick blender for 1 minute. Pour into a glass jar or container and allow to cool uncovered. Once cool, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
