Dry mustard

What is dry mustard? About the ingredient dry mustard. Including 871 recipes with dry mustard, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Mustard is often used at the table as a condiment on meat.

It is also used as an ingredient in mayonnaise, vinaigrette, marinades and barbecue sauces. It can also be used as a base for salad dressing when combined with vinegar and/or olive oil.

Mustard is a popular accompaniment to hot dogs, pretzels, and Bratwurst.

Mustard also acts as an emulsifier which can stabilize a mixture of two or more un-blendable liquids such as oil and water. Added to Hollandaise sauce, mustard can reduce the possibility of curdling.

Dry mustard, typically sold in cans, is used in cooking and can be mixed with water to become prepared mustard.

Because of its antibacterial properties, mustard does not require refrigeration; it will not grow mould, mildew or harmful bacteria.  It is still recommended to keep mustard refrigerated after opening in order to maintain quality and pungency.

Unrefrigerated mustard will lose pungency more quickly, and should be stored in a tightly sealed, sterilized container in a cool, dark place.
