Homemade Apple Cider Dijon Mustard

Making your own mustard at home is actually pretty easy, and lets you tweak the ingredients, flavor & texture to suit your taste. Here’s our recipe.

Note: It’s very important that the blender you use be a heavy duty/restaurant style model (we use a Vitamix). Conventional consumer models will probably struggle to grind down the whole mustard seeds.

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped Shallot
  • 1/3 cup + 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/3 cup White Wine
  • 6 T Yellow Mustard Seeds (or 3T Yellow + 3T Brown Mustard Seeds)
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Salt & Pepper
  • Additional Honey & Salt to Taste



Combine the 1/3 cup of the vinegar with all of the remaining ingredients in a container (holding back the ¼ cup of vinegar and honey/salt to taste). Cover and keep in the fridge overnight – at least 16 hours.

Blend in a Vitamix (or other heavy duty/restaurant-style blender) on high until it stops blending smoothly.

Add the remaining 1/4 cup vinegar and continue to blend until the mustard reaches your desired consistency.

Adjust to taste with salt and honey. Use as you would conventional Dijon mustard as a condiment or ingredient.
