  • 1/2 cup mustard powder
  • 3 tablespoon water
  • 5 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preparation Instructions

For mild mustard, combine the water and vinegar and bring to a boil, then mix in the dry ingredients. Use cold liquids for hotter mustard. For variations, try substituting a dry white wine or lemon juice in place of the water. Mustard can be any type: mild, regular or oriental. Add whole or crushed mustard seeds after completing the basic recipe. They adsorb a lot of liquid. If extra liquid is needed, consider using vinegar first.

It's a great place to start!! Use yellow mustard seeds and soak them in the vinegar but use champagne vinegar. Use same amout of black mustard seeds and soak them in good bourbon overnight. Add 3 Tbsp. honey, 1 Tbsp. brown sugar. mix, chill, and enjoy!! Chill over night.
