“Dijon mustard gets its characteristic flavor from white wine that’s added to the mustard-seed soaking liquid.  Maurine Grey and Auguste Poupin brought Dijon to the masses, but making your own mustard is just as easy as buying it at the store.”

 ½ cup dry white wine

½ cup white wine vinegar

¼ cup brown mustard seeds (about 1-1/2 ounces)

¼ cup yellow mustard seeds (about 1-1/2 ounces)

½ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a small, nonreactive bowl and stir to combine. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for 2 days.
  1. Remove the plastic wrap and transfer the mustard mixture to a blender. Blend until the desired consistency is reached about 30 seconds for a coarse texture.  (Keep in mind that it’s not possible for this mustard to reach a completely smooth consistency.)  Transfer the mustard to a small, nonreactive container with a tight fitting lid, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 months.
