Step 1

Determine how much powdered mustard the recipe needs, so you can make a calculation.

Step 2

Use 1 tbsp. of yellow mustard for every 1 tsp. of dry mustard. If the recipe calls for 1/2 tsp. of dry mustard, then you would use 1/2 tbsp. of yellow mustard.


Step 3

Measure the yellow mustard carefully so that you use the appropriate amount. Use a measuring spoon for best results.

Step 4

Decrease one of the liquids in the recipes by 1 tsp. Since you are adding liquid to the recipe with the prepared yellow mustard, you will need to take out 1 tsp. to help balance the liquid proportion.
