Homemade Yellow Mustard

Making yellow mustard is a super easy project you can make in minutes. The mustard is delicious and sharp and can be stored indefinitely, or even canned. Fair warning: your house will smell like mustard for hours after making this.


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dry yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch of garlic powderIMG_5760
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

Step 1: Mix ingredients

Put all the ingredients except the vinegar in a non-reactive sauce pan (pretty much anything except copper or cast iron), and whisk until well-mixed. Cook the mixture on medium-low until it boils, and reduce down to a thick paste, stirring frequently.

Add the vinegar to the mixture and keep whisking as it reduces, until it reduces to the desired consistency. Take it off the heat.

Step 3: Store

The mustard will last for months, and should last relatively indefinitely as long as it doesn’t get contaminated with other ingredients. Just make sure to check that it doesn’t grow green fluff.
