Take your tailgate or summer party up a notch with these Spicy Mustard Dogs with sweet & tangy pickle relish.

Test Kitchen Tip
While mostly hands-off time, both the mustard and relish need to be made ahead. And they’re so good, you’ll likely want to keep jars on hand all the time
For the mustard, combine malt vinegar, beer, and mustard seeds in a glass jar; secure lid and let stand at room temperature, 24 hours.
Process malt vinegar mixture with 1 tsp. salt, turmeric, allspice, and ginger in a mini food processor until combined, adding water by the tablespoon to reach desired consistency. Return mustard to same jar; secure lid and chill overnight.
For the relish, toss cucumber and bell pepper with 1 tsp. salt in a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl; set aside 10 minutes. Rinse and dry cucumber mixture; transfer to a glass jar.
Heat cider vinegar, sugar, and remaining ½ tsp. salt in a saucepan over medium until sugar dissolves; pour over cucumber mixture and let cool to room temperature. Secure lid and chill overnight.
Serve hot dogs in buns topped with mustard and relish.
