Organic Yellow Mustard Seed

Our high quality mustard comes to you from Saskatchewan, the heart of Canada's prairies. It is grown on a multigenerational family farm using certified organic and biodynamic methods. 

Yellow Mustard seeds are from the mustard plant, which is a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, brussels sprouts and cabbage.

Mustard seeds can be used as a condiment in a variety of dishes. They can be used as is or can be roasted in a skillet to enhance the flavour. You can easily make your own mustard condiment by first macerating the seeds in wine, vinegar or water. Grind them into a smooth paste, adding herbs and spices such as tarragon, turmeric, garlic, pepper, paprika or any others that you prefer to give your homemade mustard its own unique taste.

Yellow mustard seeds are commonly used in European and North American cooking. This is the type called for in most pickling and canning recipes, or in making corned beef or boiled vegetables. You can also grind it fresh for use in making your own mustard. Yellow mustard can be used like brown mustard but for a milder effect.

Mustard seed, one of the oldest of spices, adds warmth and heat to your dishes. It's spicy, peppery flavor goes well with other spices like garlic and chilies. The best way to fully release the flavour, is to mix the seed with warm water for about ten minutes before adding it to a recipe. To stop the development of the flavour, on the other hand, add an acidic liquid, like lemon juice, vinegar, or wine to your recipe. To make your own condiment, mix ground mustard with vinegar and water (to suit your taste). Frying the seeds in a hot skillet until they start to pop also brings out the flavour.

Mustard seeds are an excellent source of selenium and a very good source of manganese. They are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, phosphorus, and tryptophan. Like other Brassicas, mustard seeds contain plentiful amounts of phytonutrients called glucosinolates. The seeds also contain myrosinase enzymes that can break apart the glucosinolates into other phytonutrients called isothiocyanates. The isothiocyanates in mustard seed (and other Brassicas) have been repeatedly studied for their anti-cancer effects.
