How To Make Horseradish Mustard

A Spicy Alternative to a Basic Condiment

Learn how to make this simple recipe that will impress even the toughest food critics. Spicy horseradish mustard adds a little kick and turns even the most ordinary meal into a new experience.

Step 1

Gather the ingredients.

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 Tbsp freshly grated horseradish or 2 Tbsp bottled horseradish
  • 1/3 cup dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Pinch of allspice
  • Pinch of pepper

Step 2

Make the mustard base.

Combine the hot water and dry mustard together and whisk until they are thoroughly mixed. Let the mixture sit for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Blend the spices.

In a blender, puree the white wine vinegar, garlic, horseradish, salt, pepper, sugar, and allspice. To get rid of large pieces, strain the mixture with a cheese cloth after it is pureed.

Step 4

Heat the mixture.

Combine the mustard base and pureed spices in the top part of a double boiler for about 5 minutes.

If you don't have a double boiler, simply combine the two mixtures in a Pyrex or stainless steel bowl and place the bowl on top of pot that has a few inches of boiling water in it. Leave it on for about 5 minutes.

After the mustard has been heated, let it thicken up and cool.
