HomeStyle Fermented Mustard

Fermented mustard is one of those super easy and fast ferments to get started with.  If you have been fermenting it is a great addition.

What you’ll need:

  • Pint-size mason jar
  • 1/2 cup of mustard seeds (I like to use half black and half yellow – you choose)
  • 1/3 cup of filtered, spring or other water, not tap water
  • 2 tbsp. whey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • 1 or 2 garlic cloves minced


  1. Partly grind the mustard seeds
  2. Add all the rest of the ingredients and process more to combine.
  3. Add additional water if necessary for the desired consistency
  4. Cap tightly
  5. Leave at room temperature for 3 days then place in the refrigerator.


This is the good stuff, no junk added 🙂

Some people like to add apple cider vinegar when making mustard.  If you do then you are really not doing Lacto-fermentation.  If you really like the added taste you can add some after the fermenting process.
