Senf is German for "mustard". This particular senf, known as 'Süßer Senf', has a sweet, yet sharp taste that makes it great on sandwiches and crackers. While this recipe is from a 3rd or 4th generation German American, such recipes are said to originate from the southern parts of Germany (Bavaria).



  1. Mix sugar, mustard, salt, and pepper together, then add water.
  2. Add vinegar last, as the mustard will lose some of it's flavour if vinegar is introduced too early.
  3. Stir using a wire whisk to prevent lumps.
  4. Add some water if too thick.
