Whole Organic Yellow Mustard Seed
Mustard seeds can be white, yellow, black or brown, and are derived from three different plants. The black seeds are exceedingly pungent; they’re also difficult to harvest, volatile and thus more expensive. White seeds tend to be much milder but can have the fieriness of the black, depending on how they’re prepared. Black or brown mustard seeds are widely used in Indian, especially Bengali and Southern Asian, cooking. When fried, the taste is nutty rather than fiery.

Mustard seeds are from the mustard plant, which is a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. While there are approximately forty different varieties of mustard plants, there are three principal types used to make mustard seeds: black mustard (Brassica nigra), white mustard (Brassica alba) and brown mustard (Brassica juncea). Black mustard seeds have the most pungent taste, while white mustard seeds, which are actually yellow in colour, are the mildest and are the ones used to make American yellow mustard. Brown mustard, which is actually dark yellow in colour, has a pungent acrid taste and is the type used to make Dijon mustard.

Yellow mustard seeds, Brassica alba, are commonly used in European and American cooking. This is the type called for in most pickling and canning recipes, or in making corned beef.

Storage:
