Homemade Mustard Recipes

Homemade Bavarian Mustard

With baseball season here, there has been a lot of talk about hot dogs and mustard lately. I thought I would share these recipes for homemade mustard. Mustard is actually pretty easy to make.

I will admit to not being a big fan of mustard when I was a kid. I am now. I enjoy using all types of mustard in all sorts of dishes. Mustard is great on sandwiches and sausages. It is also a versatile  ingredient for salads, salad dressings, marinades and all sorts of sauces.

I lean towards spicy brown mustard myself.  I also enjoy making my own mustard. That way I can tweak the seasonings.

 

So here are a few of my favorite homemade mustard recipes. If you never made mustard before- you might want to try. It is easy and fun.
