Species: Sinapis alba
Mustard seed is one of the oldest spices, referenced in multiple ancient texts throughout the world. The seed is very small without aroma, though the taste is fiery and powerful.
Mustard seed is found in spice mixes for meats, seafood, and legumes. The seed can be fried in ghee to provide a milder nutty flavor. The seeds are ground with vinegar and other spices to make the condiment of the same name. Mustard seed is also a common pickling spice.
