Whole grain mustard

This home-made whole grain mustard requires only the simplest ingredients to make. No preservatives and other unnecessary add-ons. You don’t need any equipment to make it either. A clean jar is all you need!

I often use mustard for salad dressings, and I occasionally use it on my lunch sandwiches.

  • Ingredients
  • ¾ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • ⅔ cup mustard seeds
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt



In a clean jar, combine the vinegar, water and mustard seeds. Seal with a lid and let stand at room temperature for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.


Combine the mustard seed mixture with sugar and salt and stir well.


Place the mustard in a sterilized jar with an airtight lid. Allow the mustard to stand at room temperature for 1 to 2 days to allow the ingredients to meld.


The mustard is now ready to serve. Keep in in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
