As a beekeeper, I know honey! My recipe for a raw honey mustard sauce is simple and tasty, made with raw honey straight from the beehive.
Seriously, who doesn’t love a good dipping sauce? I am a fan of anything sweet, tangy, and great for dippin’. This honey mustard recipe uses raw honey, something we have TONS of around our homestead.
This is our third year beekeeping, and we have a few hives going strong this summer. Last year, we had 5 different hives throughout the summer and we harvested honey a few times from them. We had delicious light golden honey in June when the nectar flow was just getting going – it was floral and super sweet.
And as the year progressed we got a rich dark honey in October when the bees were foraging from sap. This late honey has a herby, medicinal, almost spicy taste to it. It’s so amazing that different tasting honey can come from the same hives, and any honey you have on hand would be great in this sauce!

Great for dipping, or topping a burger or veggie dog

Raw Honey is just a term for honey that is unpasteurized. You typically can’t buy raw honey from commercial honey companies but local beekeepers at farmers markets would be your best bet. I always keep my honey raw, so I don’t lose any nutrients from the pasteurizing process.
What’s In This Raw Honey Mustard Sauce?
Raw Honey! As a beekeeper, I have tons of raw honey from my own beehives. You can find raw honey at your local farmer’s market or apiary. Support your local beekeepers! If you have normal honey in your pantry, then by all means use that too.
Greek Yogurt: Makes the honey mustard creamy and tangy. You can use any kind of Greek yogurt (fat free, full fat, etc.) just make sure the Greek yogurt is plain and unsweetened. You can also substitute mayonnaise instead, which would be delicious.
Yellow Mustard: classic ‘hot dog mustard’ as I call it.
Whole Grain Mustard: I always keep some whole grain mustard in our cupboards for dressings, and this is a delicious addition. The whole mustard seeds give this sauce a delicious texture and little pops of flavor in each bite.
Apple Cider Vinegar: gives the sauce a great tang, and a bright bold flavor. You can use normal white vinegar too, but we always have a ton of apple cider vinegar in the cupboard… and I think it gives a nice depth of flavor.
Ground pepper: for a little extra kick!
