In essence, all mustard is a combination of ground mustard seeds and some form of liquid—it's the type of seeds and liquid that differentiates one variety of mustard from the next. Yellow mustard is the most widely grown type of mustard seed and has the mildest flavor; its bright yellow color comes from turmeric.


  • ¾ cup mustard powder

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder

  • teaspoon garlic powder

  • teaspoon paprika

  • ½ cup white vinegar


  1. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water, mustard powder, salt, turmeric, garlic and paprika over low to medium heat. Cook for 35 minutes, stirring often until the mixture thickens into a paste.

  2. Add the vinegar and continue to cook until thickened into mustard consistency, whisking regularly for about 10 minutes.

  3. Cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container or bottle in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
