Apricot Basil Mustard

  • 2 tbs. apricot jam
  • 60 ml yellow mustard powder
  • 4 tbs. of mustard seeds, yellow or brown, or 2 of each, ground coarsely
  • 6 leaves of fresh basil, chopped fine
  • 2 tbs. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbs. brown balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 pinch of chili powder


  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend them well 
  • The finer you grind the mustard seeds the spicier the finished mustard will become 
  • After about 5 minutes the mustard paste should be ready. 
  • Once you are happy with the consistency of your mustard fill it into a glass with a lid and let it mature in the fridge for at least 3 days. 
  • Like a good wine, mustard tastes better once the ingredients have had time to blend together for some time.
