Why This Recipe Works
Recipes for homemade mustard often require days of presoaking. And even then the finished product can come across harsh, overly spicy, and acrid. To tame its heat, we increased the water to dry mustard ratio to 4:1. We then balanced the flavor with vinegar, sugar, and salt. Finally, to get the right consistency, we microwaved the mixture with a touch of cornstarch to thicken it.
