Homemade Mustard—German Style

Homemade Mustard--- German Style

We love to make our own mustard--why not? It's so easy and tastes soooo good!

  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard seeds
  • 2 Tbsp brown mustard seeds
  • 1/4 cup mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 white onion, small (finely minced)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp tarragon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  1. In a small bowl, combine mustard seed and dry mustard. Set aside

  2. In a 1-2 quart non aluminum pan, combine remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered on medium heat until reduced by half, 10-15 minutes. Pour the mixture into the mustard mixture. Let mixture soak at room temperature 24-48 hours; adding additional vinegar if necessary in order to maintain enough liquid to cover seeds.

  3. Process the seeds and mixture in a blender or food processor until pureed to the texture you like--this can take at least 3-4 minutes.

  4. The mixture will thicken upon standing.

  5. If it gets too thick after a few days, stir in additional vinegar. Scrape mustard into clean, dry jars; cover tightly and age at least 3 days.
