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



Recipe can easily be doubled.


Mix mustard seeds and mustard powder together. Add water, mix well and 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, sealed, in the refrigerator.

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.
