Black mustard seeds (Brassica nigra)

Black mustard is much spicier than the white or yellow. It comes from the Mediterranean area and it was used by the Romans as a spice and medicinal plant.

As a medicinal plant it is especially interesting because used topically it stimulates blood circulation, improves rheumatism and muscle problems.

Internally it improves digestion and reduces flatulence. A further use as seasoning is to make mustard sauce (sweet, spicy with herbs such as tarragon, etc).

A simple recipe for homemade mustard sauce:

100g finely ground mustard seeds (white or black or mixed). Add 80ml of water and 60ml vinegar (5% acidity) and mix. Add 1 tablespoon salt and 2-3 tablespoons sugar and stir in the mortar for approx. 5 minutes until all is crushed and blended as a sauce.

Mustard sauce can be kept in small tightly closed glass jars (if poorly closed or once opened it loses its aroma!) Place in the fridge for at least a week so that the sauce acquires its characteristic aroma.

This annual plant is very easy to grow and can also be used as organic fertilizer substrate.
