It does, more or less. You can get a pretty good grind and it came out about
the same as using the mortar and pestle. But it was still pretty full of hulls
so I took the completed mustard and scraped it through a screen which produced
a very nice thick paste.

Considering I don't have a proper Medieval, gallon-sized mortar I'll be using
my grinder but this time I will probably try a batch ground first and then soaked
in vinegar. After an overnight soaking I'll add the other ingredients and then jar
the results for a month of mellowing.

The coffee grinder is great, but if you pre-soak the seeds make sure you give
the grinder frequent rests so you don't burn out the motor.> Maggie
