Grainy Yellow Mustard

Cider vinegar fermented mustard with 5 different flavours - yellow, beer, herb, fruit

Mustard is easy to make at home! Leave it grainy or blend it smooth. See the section above for ways to flavour this basic fermented mustard. Make a hot mustard, yellow mustard or basil mustard!




  1. Mix the mustard seeds with the salt, water, and cider vinegar in a non-reactive glass dish.
  2. Allow them to ferment at room temperature for 2 days.
  3. After fermenting, add any additional flavours (see the section above for options.)
  4. Using a blender or an immersion blender, grind the seeds to the desired consistency. Add water if more liquid is required. The exact amount of liquid will depend on how finely ground the mustard is.
  5. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Allow the mustard to ripen for at least 2 weeks before using. It should last in the fridge for at least 6 months.
