I have a question about the recipe "Spicy Celery Quick Pickle Sticks" from vrunka. Mustard seeds are listed twice in the recipe. Should some be ground and some be left whole? Or is this a typo? Thank you for your help!
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
In the headnotes to the recipe, the tester says that she used 1.5 tsp as a compromise and liked the results. You might try that!
Very sorry about all the confusion. I've been having a devil of a time trying to edit the recipe -- it just never seems to change!
The correct amount is 1 tablespoon. I just leave them whole, but you could crush them a bit in a mortar and pestle if you want more mustard flavor. I would not use ground, however, as I think that would be too strong and would probably also leave a film on the celery.
