Mauer's Hot Dog Mustard

1 cup spring water

¾ cup (76 grams) regular dry mustard powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon sweet paprika

½ cup white distilled vinegar (preferably organic)

In a 2-quart (non-aluminum) saucepan whisk the water, dry mustard, salt, turmeric, garlic powder, and paprika together until smooth. Place the saucepan pan over medium heat. Stir the mixture often until it starts to bubble. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring often, until it becomes thicker, about 30 to 35 minutes.

When thickened, add the vinegar and whisk until combined. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until it reaches store-bought mustard consistency.

Remove from the pan from the heat and cool the mustard to room temperature. Transfer the cooled mustard to a glass jar; seal and refrigerate. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Note: The mustard flavor will change over time. At first, it's a little rough and then it mellows somewhat. This mustard has a slightly stronger flavor than store-bought mustard.
