Making your own mustard is a breeze! Start with this basic master recipe, then explore adding different flavors like chipotle, honey, or garlic.



This recipe can easily be doubled. Try out some of these flavor variations to add your own spin on this mustard:

Spicy: Use more brown mustard and less yellow mustard, regular mustard powder instead of mild, or replace brown mustard for crushed black mustard seeds for more heat.

Maple Chipotle: Add 1 oz. maple sugar and 1 tsp. ground chipotle. (May need to add more water for desired consistency.)

Honey Mustard: Add 1 oz. honey powder. (May need to add more water for desired consistency.)

Garlic Pale Ale: Replace vinegar with 4 oz. of your favorite pale ale beer and add 1/4 tsp. roasted granulated garlic.


Mix mustard seeds, mustard powder, and water together. Let mixture sit for 30 min. Add vinegar and salt and mix well. Mustard will be spicy. Let it sit in a cool, dark place for 24 to 72 hours; the longer it sits, the milder it will get. Once at desired heat level, refrigerate. It will last several months in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.


6 oz.

With a few variations from previous mustard experiences (temperature, length and vinegar experiments) this was wonderful- the Piri-Piri makes an excellent mustard with a mix between the Yellow Mustard, Hot Oriental, and Brown Mustard Seeds.
