About the Recipe


  • ½ cup yellow mustard powder

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 5 tablespoons white distilled vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. For mild mustard, combine the water and vinegar and bring to a boil, then mix in the dry ingredients.

  2. For hotter mustard, use cold liquids.

*Note: For variations, you can substitute different vinegars (like green olive vinegar) or lemon juice in place of the water.

Mustard can be any type: mild, regular, or oriental. Add whole or crushed mustard seeds after mixing the original ingredients together. They will absorb a lot of liquid and so you may need to add a little more vinegar. Experiment until you get the flavor and texture you like.
