If you really want to wow the mustard lover in your life, or yourself, this Christmas, make some homemade mustard. With some simple ingredients, you can make homemade  mustard in minutes, and there can be many variations, depending on what you are willing to put in it. Around here, horseradish is a staple, but there has been honey, fine herb, and the most recent invention: Extra Hot Red Pepper (be sure to have a fire extinguisher nearby). This latest is for one person on my Christmas list where there is no such thing as too hot. The first one wasn’t hot enough (not enough red pepper flakes). Little did I know who I was dealing with. Even goes on his toast.

The Base Recipe:

  • 1 cup dry mustard powder
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 2/3 cup cold water

For the variations:

  • red pepper flakes
  • honey
  • horseradish
  • herbs of your choice
