When to Use Organic Black Mustard Seeds
There are about 40 varieties of mustard grown all over the world, but Organic Black Mustard Seeds stand out as unique. They are the darkest in color and the most pungent among all mustard seeds. This means that they have the strongest flavor and are the hottest. Therefore, if you like your food very spicy and hot, Organic Whole Black Mustard Seeds are exactly what you need.
Like the majority of pungent spices, Organic Raw Black Mustard Seeds are quite nutritious. They contain large amounts of iron, calcium, and vitamin C in particular. They are also rather rich in fiber. As the seeds are a hot spice, you can’t really eat large servings of them. But even a tablespoon will provide you with a considerable amount of essential nutrients.
Dried Organic Black Mustard Seeds are naturally pungent, and hot with traces of bitterness in their flavor. However, you can control the pungency to your taste. The enzyme that makes mustard hot, breaks down when exposed to heat. This means that toasting the seeds will make them a bit milder and sweeter. But they will retain the distinctive flavor that sets black mustard apart from others.
How to Use Organic Black Mustard Seeds in Cooking
If you buy Organic Black Mustard Seeds in bulk, you’ll be able to use them to make outstanding pickles and chutneys. Simply substitute white or yellow mustard with black, for a stronger flavor. Or you can add them to your usual blend of pickling spices for an extra kick.
Organic Whole Black Mustard Seeds are also a common ingredient in many Indian spice blends. Thus, they are a good choice when you are making curry, dal, or other traditional Indian dishes.
Of course, you can also use Organic Raw Black Mustard Seeds for your homemade mustard. Mix them with yellow and white seeds, or use only black to get the hottest result.
