    Pungency develops when the seed is ground up and wetted with cold water.  Adding salt or vinegar interrupts this enzymatic process.  To make your own mustard, grind the seeds and wet with water.  Cover and allow to ferment for a few minutes, then add vinegar and salt until the paste loosens to the consistency of yellow mustard.  This will be an excellent condiment, and quite hot, as we have found.
