How To Make Mustard

A Simple Recipe for an Essential Condiment

Learn a simple and straightforward recipe for how to make your own homemade mustard. From hot dogs to burgers to salad dressings, mustard can be used in a variety of ways and is one of America's favorite condiments. Use the following recipe to create a batch of your own freshly-made mustard.

Step 1

Gather your ingredients.

You will need the following ingredients to make mustard:

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard powder/flour
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp yellow mustard seed (ground)
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Step 2

Grind and combine the mustard.

Grind the mustard seed until you have 2 Tbsp worth of it. For a more grainy mustard, simply don't grind the seed as much. Leaving bigger chunks will create a unique texture, but may not allow for a uniform flavor.

Combine the ground mustard with the mustard powder and water and mix thoroughly.

Step 3

Add in the vinegar and salt.

After the mixture has sat for about 8-10 minutes, stir in the apple cider vinegar and salt. Blend the mixture until it is completely mixed. For the best taste, put the mustard in the refrigerator overnight before eating.
