Mustard is more than just a condiment, and mustard seeds have long been used in culinary creations. You may already use yellow mustard seeds in your everyday recipes, but black mustard seeds are prized for their distinctive flavor. These tiny round seeds are about 2 -3 millimeters in size and do not require a massive amount to spice up a dish. Their spicy flavor profile is similar to wasabi and horseradish.
Black mustard seed has also been around since ancient and medieval times and even makes a cameo in the Bible. The name mustard comes from the french mout-ardent which means burning must.
Mustard seeds are naturally high in phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They are an important element in alternative medicine to help with digestion, colds, and aches and pains.
