why is my mustard bitter?

zorgclyde | Dec 1, 2006 04:05 AM

I tried making some mustard from the yellow mustard powder I got at the Indian grocery today by mixing it with cold water, vinegar, and some salt. However, it was bitter beyond belief - comparable to the worst bitter melons. I added honey and let it it for an hour, but to no avail. Did I do something wrong? What happened?

And if that stuff isn't suitable for making mustard, what do I do with it?
