Substitution Options

Here are a few substitution options, if needed, when making mustard with horseradish.

Horseradish – If you don’t have access to fresh horseradish or prepared horseradish, you can use horseradish sauce. It’s not as potent, so you may need to add a bit more to increase the spice factor.

Mustard – If you don’t have dijon mustard, go ahead and use spicy brown mustard in equal parts.
