  1. Question – This says mix equal parts mustard and water but gives a different ratio within the ingredient list. Can you help on which it is.

    Love how simple it is.

    • may be the powder has a lower density, so that the total weight of water and mustard powder is about the same?

    • It’s by weight. A Tbsp. of water is about .5 oz. Two Tbsp. of ground mustard seed is also .5 oz.
