If you prefer mustard with more of a bitter taste, then find a recipe that is boiled, such as the Dijon Mustard recipe. If you prefer a sweet mustard, then use a recipe that does not involve cooking or boiling, such as this one, or try the Whole Grain Dijon Mustard recipe.

Prepared mustard will last for about a month. Mustard is "cured" by being kept out of the refrigerator. Refrigeration stops the heat from developing further. You can refrigerate your mustard when the desired heat has "cured" to just the right level for your taste. Homemade mustard won’t be as bright in color as store bought, so if you want it a brighter yellow, you can add some turmeric to brighten it up.

Mustard is best prepared and stored in glass bowls and jars.

This is a basic recipe that can be made on demand when you want some mustard. Let it stand for a bit and the heat will reduce, for up to 2 weeks. You can experiment with some different herbs and spices to make some different versions. Vinegar and lemon juice will also add a lovely tanginess.

Use all organic ingredients, ensure any dried spices are labeled certified gluten free, and ensure any packaged items are labeled gluten free.

1/2 cup Mustard powder
2 tablespoons to 1/2 cup Water
Sea salt
Fresh parsley or basil (optional)
Fresh lemon or lime zest (optional)
1 to 2 tablespoons Vinegar (optional)
Turmeric (optional)
  • Mix the mustard powder, sea salt and water in a bowl and combine well. Add just enough liquid to make the consistency you want. If it thickens up in the future, just add a little bit more water.
  • If desired, you can add some fresh chopped parsley or basil, some lemon or lime zest and 1 or 2 tablespoons of your favorite gluten free vinegar. If you want a more traditional yellow color, add some turmeric.
  • Let the mustard stand for about 15 minutes before serving. It can be "cured" up to 2 weeks without refrigeration. When the desired flavor is obtained, place in the refrigerator.
