Cole & Mason Yellow Mustard Seeds
Eat our Yellow Mustard Seeds with a carrot salad. Grate carrots and dress with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, coarsely ground black pepper and sea salt to taste. Heat some oil in a pan, throw in a few mustard seeds until they pop, then pour over the salad.
Why not try pickling your own cucumber. Thinly slice a whole cucumber, toss the slices in sea salt and let them sit for an hour. Meanwhile, boil together cider vinegar, sugar, yellow mustard seeds and a pinch of turmeric to make a brine. Rinse the salt off the cucumbers and add to the brine.
Most of us think of mustard as the yellow sauce that comes in a bottle. But the seeds themselves are used to flavour everything from Indian curries to American-style pickles.
The plant that the seeds come from is actually part of the cabbage family. They come in yellow, brown and black varieties. Yellow is the mildest, but still has a bite. Our own yellow mustard seeds come from India, but they're also grown across southern Europe, China and Canada.
