Mustard Powder = Ground Mustard Seed?

Hello DC.

I tried searching the forums and could not really find what I was looking for.

The recipe I'm using is for scratch Mac and Cheese and it calls for TBSP of Mustard Powder, of which I have none of. I do have Mustard Seed and a Mortar and Pestle. You see where I'm going with this?

Are the two interchangeable?

If so what do I need to know about handling the Mustard Seed?

Your recipe is probably calling for THIS It's actually a flour.

I doubt you will get there will a Mortar & Pestle

It's close, but you'll wind up with little pieces of the hull that won't grind. You'll have to sift those out and the ground mustard seed will be a little stronger than mustard flour, which, as UB pointed out, is probably what it's calling for.

Thanks Guys...I haven't made it to the store yet. I thought about sifting the hulls out. I think that is what I will do and see how it turns out and if I have second thoughts I'll pickup some powder.

EDIT: Ha Ha....I looked in my cupboard again and found some Sun Luck Chinese Mustard Powder. Ingredients....Mustard Flour.
