This recipe came in very handy when I realized we had no mustard for our hot dogs and we were 20 miles from the nearest store! This is from 'Even More Top Secret Recipes' by Todd Wilbur.

This is a great recipe it will be one I will use quite often, I am going to try it with some mustard seeds in it as well.

It's perfect; looks like it, smells like it, tastes like it and it feels like it (has the right texture). Used it all up the day I made it so I'll have to do another batch to find out how long it will keep in the frig.

Incredible - how easy is it make make your own mustard! We were having hot dogs a couple days ago, and we were all out of yellow mustard. (Can't have a hot dog without it!) I came across this recipe, and it's a dead ringer for the store bought stuff. I keep all these ingredients in my pantry, so I'm using this from now on. Thank you for sharing! :)
