Homemade country mustard is made from both mustard seeds and mustard powder. Grind the seeds from coarse to fine, depending on your own personal tastes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard seeds, coarsely ground
  • 1/4 cup brown or yellow mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Grind the mustard seeds to the texture you desire. (There is no "correct'" texture.) Mix the mustard powder and ground seeds with the water. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add the vinegar and salt; blend well. Refrigerate overnight before using.

Yield: about 1 cup
