My Dijon Mustard

My Dijon Mustard......
Cik Ngah start to like mustard because of Subway. Sedapnya, Subway sandwich!!! Then news broke that the Halal certificate poses by Subway is not recognized in Malaysia and Subway restaurants has been asked to put out the Halal sign. So at that time, since the Halal issues still not resolved, Cik Ngah decided to make home made Subway style sandwiches. Bawak bekal pi office!!!

One thing that Cik Ngah cannot find is Msutard with Halal sign, especially Dijon Mustard.. Apa lagi, Mr Google ler.... Found this recipe and made Dijon Mustard... The recipe calls for dry white wine, Cik Ngah replace with white grape juice. 

This post has been sitting in the draft for almost a year now... Cik Ngah could not find the picture that Cik Ngah took. This is 2nd time Cik Ngah made this sauce. This prepared Mustard can be used to make all kind of sauce... All American BBQ sauce etc... The recipe;


2 cups white grape juice (to replace dry white wine)
1 large onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup mustard powder (4 oz)
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil  
2 teaspoons salt

  1. In a non-stick saucepan combine the wine, onion and garlic; heat to boiling, simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Cool, and discard solids.
  3. Add the dry mustard to the cooked liquid, stirring constantly until smooth.
  4. Blend in honey, oil and salt; heat slowly until thickened (keep nose away; fumes are strong!), stirring constantly.
  5. Pour into a glass jar; cool, let sit on counter at room temperature overnight.
  6. Refrigerate for 2-8 weeks to age flavor before using.


  1. Hi i followed the recipe but my mustard turned out bitter. what did i do wrong?

  2. It could be black or brown mustard that you used. They tend to be more pungent.

  3. From where did you get the mustard powder?
