Sharp Mustard

This is my aunt's easy and delicious mustard recipe. It tastes great with ham or on sandwiches, and makes enough to share.

  • 3.5 ounces dry mustard (I like Colman's)
  • 1 c apple cider vinegar
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1-1/2 c mayonnaise
  • 1 Egg


  1. Combine the dry mustard and vinegar in a bowl and let sit for 8-12 hours (I'll usually do this before bed and then make the mustard the next morning).

  2. Beat the egg off heat in a medium saucepan and then add the sugar, salt, and mustard/vinegar mixture.

  3. Cook over medium heat until thickened, remove from heat and let sit until cool.

  4. Stir in the mayonnaise and mix until smooth (I prefer a wire whisk to remove lumps).

  5. Pour into jars and refrigerate.
