Tarragon Mustard

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by FLKeysJen

After one taste of this sharp, spicy homemade mustard, you'll find that it's worth the time to make your own. You can grind it by hand with a mortar and pestle to get a nice chunky texture, or make it in a blender being careful to use a low speed so you don't crush the seeds.

This is really good! My family loves mustard so I decided to make this. They really enjoyed it and it's much better than store-bought kind, but most things are! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the port, vinegar, mustard seeds, shallots and garlic in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Transfer the mustard seed mixture to a blender and add the chili powder, ginger, salt and mustard oil. With the blender running on low speed, add 1/2 cup water and blend, adding a little more water if the mustard is too thick. Add the olive oil in a slow, steady stream until well-blended.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the tarragon.
  4. Store in a tightly-covered container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
