Mustard is a spice that has been consumed since ancient times. The Greeks and the Romans used it for seasoning their dishes.
There are different species of mustard used to prepare the sauce that bears its name: yellow or white mustard (Sinapis alba L.), brown or Chinese mustard (Brassica juncea (L.) Czern.) and black mustard (Brassica nigra (L.) K.Koch). In addition to being rich in proteins and oils, mustard sauces also contain sodium, selenium and vitamins (C and B12).
Yellow mustard is used to make American mustard sauce and has a milder flavour than brown mustard, which is more pungent and aromatic. At Anastore, we recommend that you get to know this age-old spice: add a unique flavour to your dishes, with our organic yellow mustard seeds!
DESCRIPTION AND ORIGIN
Mustards belong to the Brassicaceae family and were one of the first plants to be cultivated. Their seeds are considered to be the oldest species on record, dating back nearly 5,000 years (2).
Yellow mustard (Sinapis alba L.), also known as white mustard, is native to southern Europe (2). It is an annual plant that can grow up to 1 metre tall, with large yellow large leaves, yellow flowers and small seeds. The fruit of yellow mustard is similar to that of black mustard (Brassica nigra (L.) Koch), although it is smaller in size (3).
Mustard has been well known since ancient times. It was even cited in one of the parables of Jesus Christ in the New Testament (2). The Greeks used mustard to season their dishes, while Pythagoras recommended its use since he believed that it boosted memory and lifted spirits. The Romans used it as a condiment, as a digestive aid and to combat headaches. They also used it in their spiced wines and soaked its leaves in vinegar (4).
Yellow mustard, like other mustard species, is rich in lipids (30%), sulphur-containing compounds (glucosinolates), nitrogen-containing compounds, proteins and mucilage (5). The oil obtained from mustard seeds is used for industrial purposes and in the kitchen to provide a spicy flavour (1).
Mustard sauce also contains a significant amount of sodium and selenium, and is a good source of vitamins C and B12 (4).
USES, RECIPESAs well as being a condiment, mustard has traditionally been used for medicinal purposes. The German Commission E approves the external use of yellow mustard seeds for the preparation of poultices in cases of respiratory tract complaints and chronic osteoarticular inflammations (6). In the kitchen, mustard is used to prepare Dijon mustard, while yellow mustard has a milder flavour and is used to prepare American yellow mustard sauce (7). It can also be used directly as a condiment in the kitchen. Here is a recipe for preparing mustard-flavoured corvina fillets with courgette spaghetti (8):
Ingredients (2 people):
- 1 corvina (1.5 kg)
- 1 courgette
- 1 tablespoon of organic yellow mustard seeds
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 2 slices of lemon
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 pinch of pepper
- Rinse the corvina fillets under the cold water tap to remove any scales and bones.
- Wash the courgette and cut it into thin spaghetti shapes.
- This fish is steam cooked: in a microwaveable dish, make a bed with the spaghetti and place the corvina fillets on top. Add two slices of lemon, dress with olive oil and sprinkle with yellow mustard seeds, salt and pepper.
- Heat in the microwave for approximately 3 minutes at maximum power. If after 3 minutes it is not fully cooked, continue heating at 30-second intervals until the fish has a pearly white colour.
