Make a homemade honey Dijon mustard to use in those recipes you want to be even more special. This Dijon mustard is simply made with honey, white wine, onion, garlic, dry mustard, and if you so desire (and we do!) dashes of Tabasco sauce.

Although it takes about 30 minutes to make this homemade mustard, you need to wait for a few days and let those ingredients mingle together in a container. The wait is worth it because this homemade condiment will come out bursting with flavor.

Enjoy this Dijon mustard on all your favorite meats, from burgers and hot dogs to pork loin roasts, or dipping those delectable chicken tenders, and don't forget about using it in your homemade potato salad or deviled eggs. You will find many uses for this tangy, delicious mustard besides using it as a sandwich spread.


  • 2 tablespoons honey, or to taste

  • 2 cups dry white wine

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) dry mustard

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 4 dashes Tabasco sauce, optional

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine honey, wine, onion, and garlic. Heat to boiling. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Pour mixture into bowl and cool. Strain the wine mixture into dry mustard in a small saucepan, whisking until very smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Heat slowly, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Allow it to cool.

  4. Pour into a nonmetal container and cover. Refrigerate for at least two days to blend flavors.


  • After mixing, let the mustard sit in the refrigerator for two days to ensure you allow the flavors to merge together.
  • You can leave out the Tabasco sauce if you'd like, but we think it gives just an extra oomph to the flavor of this mustard.

How to Store

  • Store your mustard in an airtight container or Mason jar in the refrigerator. It will keep for a few weeks.
