Make Mustard Yourself: Here’s How

Make mustard yourself: The basic recipe

From these ingredients you get about 500 ml of mustard:

  • 250 g mustard flour, 50 g sugar, 15 g salt, 100 ml white wine vinegar, and 200 ml water.
  • Mix the mustard flour with sugar and salt.
  • Alternatively, you can do without the sugar entirely or use a low-calorie variant, such as stevia.
  • Put the vinegar and water in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Let everything cool down to below 30 degrees and then add the liquid to the mustard flour.
  • This is important because mustard oil does not tolerate high temperatures.
  • Now you need to mix all the ingredients together well.
  • When using a hand blender, make sure that the mass does not get too hot.
  • If you fill the mustard into sterilized jars, you can store it for up to 6 weeks afterward.
