Basic Yellow Mustard

Have you tried making your own mustard? It’s a fun little project and you end up with something that tastes more like a gourmet mustard than the bright yellow stuff in the bottle. All it takes is some mustard seeds, vinegar, water, salt and pepper.

If you’re growing mustard greens in the garden, let a few of them grow to maturity and harvest the seeds to do this. Otherwise, you can find mustard seeds at the grocery store, or order them from Amazon.

Basic Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 cup yellow or black mustard seeds
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water or flat beer
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Soak seeds in vinegar and water or beer for 2 days.
  2. Place mixture in blender along with sugar and salt and puree until almost smooth. Add water if needed for desired consistency.

Homemade Mustard

Mustard will be very spicy, but will mellow after a day or two in the refrigerator.

NOTE: To make an herb mustard, add 1 teaspoon of herb of your choice with the sugar and salt.

For Honey Mustard: add honey to completed mustard at a 1:1 ratio.
