  • What is mustard?

    Mustard (mustum ardens) is a condiment made with mustard seeds, a plant of the Brassicaceae family. Yellow mustard is made from light yellow seeds.

    This biannual or annual plant is 0.60 to 1.5 m high and 0.30 to 0.70 m wide. It is distinguished by its evergreen foliage and yellow flowers.... mustard of course.

    Mustard plants should be planted between March and October, they have excellent resistance to cold. They appreciate calcareous, clayey or sandy soil. Allow 80 to 95 days after the semi for the mustard plant to mature.

    Did you know that? Mustard is the most widely consumed condiment in the world after salt and pepper.

    Harvesting mustard seeds

    Condiment mustard seeds are harvested in spring or late summer.

    Cut the stems before the seed pods, also called silica, turn brown. Let them dry in a well-ventilated and dark room. As they dry, the mustard stems lose their seeds. Place a container under your branches to collect mature seeds.

    To harvest mustard seeds, shake the branches over a sieve.

    Did you know that? Canada is the largest producer of mustard seeds (35%), followed by Nepal (24%) and Russia (10%).

    The different varieties of mustard

    There are more than 40 species of mustard. The most common are:

    • White mustard (Sinapis alba): this fast-growing herbaceous plant has yellow or white petals. It produces less bitter and less spicy seeds than other varieties.
    • Black mustard (Brassica nigra): this herbaceous plant has yellow flowers with 4 petals. It produces very hot black mustard seeds.
    • Field mustard (Sinapis arvensis): this annual plant is often considered a weed. Wild, it proliferates rapidly.
    • Brown mustard (or Chinese mustard): this variety of mustard is grown for its leaves and brown seeds. It is used in the composition of Dijon mustard.

    David Vanille's choice: With these yellow mustard pearls, I wanted to offer you the opportunity to revisit the great traditional mustard dishes. Thanks to them, you can create a contemporary and light kitchen at home

    Differences between mustards

    Dijon mustard, sweet mustard, old-fashioned mustard... all condiments made from mustard plants. All have their own particularities:

    • Sweet mustard: this condiment is made from a mixture of strong mustard seeds, brown and black, to which white mustard seeds are added to soften the taste.
    • Dijon mustard: this is the only variety that can benefit from the appellations "strong" and "semi-strong". It contains exclusively black and brown mustard seeds to which verjuice or vinegar, salt and citric acid have been added.
    • Old-fashioned mustard: this condiment is a mixture of mustard seeds, coriander seeds, pepper seeds, vinegar, water, oil and flour. It seduces for its thick texture and is very appreciated by cooks to flavor meats.


    The origins of mustard

    Mustard in Antiquity

    The origins of mustard go back to Antiquity. It was already found in 3000 BC in China and Egypt where mustard seeds were found in some ancient tombs. It was used by the Romans and Greeks who already used it in cooking. Cultivated by Théophraste and recommended by Aristotle to season poultry, mustard was also mentioned in Apicius' cookbook "De re coquinaria".

    Mustard in the Middle Ages

    In France, it was in 1292 that the name "mustard maker" first appeared, the one who sold mustard. Cheaper than spices such as pepper, mustard is a condiment widely used by the population.

    Did you know that? The golden age of mustard is the Renaissance, when it appears in all banquets and is praised by great names such as Rabelais.

    In the 17th century, fine mustard appeared, followed by many aromatic mustard recipes.

    Always handmade until then, mustard was produced by machine from 1850 onwards. The efficiency is up to 3 times higher than the manual method.

    Today, mustard production is governed by a 1937 decree, revised in 2000. Only a few manufacturers still work with mustard by grinding.

    Other uses of mustard

    Mustard is a condiment of the cruciferous family (cabbage family). Its benefits are many:

    • Promotes digestion: eating mustard promotes the production of gastric sugar and saliva, which increases the production of the digestive system.
    • Anticarcinogen: mustard contains allyl isothiocyanate, an active ingredient that limits the development of certain cancers due to excessive consumption of red meat.

    The pearls of Russian yellow mustard that I have selected bring a spicy note to your dishes while offering you the opportunity to elegantly arrange your plate. Find out how to use them in an original way.

    The starter: Asparagus salad and poached egg with mustard pearls

    This light starter with mustard is best served with fresh asparagus, but out of season, jarred asparagus will do. Cook your asparagus in salted water and poach two eggs. Season with salt and pepper and add a few pearls of Russian mustard.

    The dish: Gourmet rabbit with mustard pearls

    The rabbit with mustard is a classic in French cuisine. I suggest you to revisit it by making a much lighter version thanks to mustard beads. Brown your rabbit pieces in a casserole dish with a little oil and drizzle with poultry broth and dry white wine. Season with pepper and salt if necessary. Arrange and sprinkle a few pearls of mustard and a little fresh parsley. A delight with wild rice or roasted potatoes.

    Dessert: Chocolate cake with yellow fruit and mustard

    The traditional chocolate softness is back in a spicy version. Here, you will accompany it with roasted yellow fruits, such as mirabelles, on which you will add a few mustard pearls.
