Mango Honey Mustard

Summary: Commercial honey mustards are often cloying and uninteresting. But a homemade one spiked with fresh mango is a different and exciting beast entirely!

  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons black mustard seeds
  • 2 allspice berries, coarsely ground
  • 8 white peppercorns, coarsely ground
  • 1/6 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/6 cup white wine (I used Grüner V)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Vidalia onions
  • 1½ - 2 Ataulfo (champagne) mangoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons honey


In a glass bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients (yellow mustard seeds through Vidalia onions). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight.

Pour the mixture into a clean 32 oz yogurt tub (or a similarly vertical vessel) and add the chopped mango (2 if you only used the large sides but didn't pare around the seed; 1½ if you did trim the entire fruit), brown sugar and honey. Puree with an immersion blender to your desired chunkiness. Serve or chill.
