LOOKING for: Mustard like Frenches Yellow

gardensewerApril 19, 2010

I have tried so many recipes for mustards and just can't get that French's yellow type mustard. Need to be able to make my own due to sensitivities of my hubby to the msg in natural flavorings. I would also love to match the Guldens spicy brown mustard tho that one has no natural flavoring according to the ingredients. Anyone have such a thing?

The several mustards I have in my refrig don't contain MAS or any of the "hydrolized vegetable proteins" that can be a euphemism for MSG. But I don't have French's or Guildens...I have imported Australian mustard and maille etc.
French's yellow is heavy on tumeric and short on mustard.
If I were in your position I would make some home made mayonaise ( unless comercial mayo doesn't bother him) and add some Coleman's dry mustard and tumeric to taste.
For a grainy mustard, get some brown mustard seeds and grind them....mix with a teaspoon of water to make a paste and add to mayo.
You can make your own emulsions with ground mustard seeds and oil and vinegar but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble.
I suggest you try other kinds of mustards....read the labels to find one without "natural flavors".

Here's another copycat recipe. It's slightly different from the one Ginger posted. You could make up both recipes and see which one has the better taste and consistency. I'm curious about this topic, so I'd appreciate you posting back your results.

1 tsp. oil

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until smooth. When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove pan from heat and cover until cool.
Chill in a covered container.

Thanks! Never tried any with flour in them. That may be the texture issue solution. I don't trust any commercial products. So many things have MSG and say they don't. I feel like the food industry puts MSG into things so our taste buds will be so burned out that we won't notice the poor quality of things. But there are a few things that are the normal that family has gotten used to and I wanted to get as close as possible without the bad things.
