My mom used to make this Sweet Mustard when I was a kid. So I have to assume it's well over 50 years old. That doesn't mean it hasn't held up all these years.
This sweet mustard goes great on corndogs, hot dogs and even hamburgers. This recipe is so easy to make that you can whip it up minutes before you are ready to eat. You only need 3 ingredients to make this mustard recipe.
What really makes this mustard so delicious is the celery seeds. The original recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons of celery seed but I would suggest experimenting a bit to fine-tune the flavor. I personally like to use more celery seeds but that's for my taste buds.
Having made this recipe for a couple of decades now, I really wanted to know more about celery seeds. I mean how many recipes have you made with celery seeds?
I decided to check Wiki and found this interesting article on the Origins of Celery Seed. It doesn't really explain the flavor profile of celery seeds but I thought it was an interesting article nonetheless.
If you've never tasted celery seeds before, do yourself a favor and try it one of these days. And this sweet mustard recipe is probably the easiest way to taste them.
If you are looking for spicy mustard instead of sweet mustard recipes, you have to try my Jalapeño Mustard recipe or my Spicy Hot Mustard recipe. BTW, my Copycat Disney Corn Dogs go perfectly with this Sweet Mustard.
