A healthy, homemade mustard to complement your favorite dishes. (Contributed by Derrick D.)

This recipe is all all-time favorite, shared and featured in ThyCa's Low-Iodine Cookbook.

In Derrick's own words:

"There are no precise measurements, as you can add or take away ingredients to make this, as it is made to taste."


  • Mustard seed or ground mustard (Chef's Tip: Mustard seed gives a more pronounced flavor, but ground works just as well)

  • Hot water (Chef's Tip: The hotter the water, the spicier the mustard will be)

  • Non-iodized salt

  • Vinegar

  • Paprika


  1. If you use mustard seed, soak it in cold water for at least one hour to soften it before grinding into a paste, as hot water will weaken the flavor

  2. Next, mix the ground mustard and water to make a paste

  3. Add non-iodized salt and paprika to taste

  4. Then, add a small amount of vinegar to thin out the paste

  5. That's it! Low-iodine mustard made easy
