What does Yellow Mustard Taste Like
Whole mustard seeds have no noticeable aroma but once ground they are a bit pungent. Cooking releases an acrid, earthy aroma.
Cooking with Yellow Mustard Seed
We love using homemade mustard in deviled eggs, ham, cheese, pork and bean dishes, in cocktail and barbeque sauces, and in soups or chowders.
Ground and whole mustard seed adds flavor to sauces (hollandaise sauce in particular), dressings, and mayonnaise as well as grilled and roasted beef, cabbage, strong cheeses, chicken, curries, dals, fish, and seafood, cold meats, rabbit, sausages and barbecue rubs.
In England cooks use mustard with ham and roast beef, In the Caribbean it is an ingredient in sauces for fruit, and in India the nutty flavor of the mustard seed is intensified by cooking in hot oil before adding it to chutneys, curries, and sauces. Mustard seeds are also popular in pickling spices.
Mustard also works well when paired with bay, chili, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, fenugreek, garlic, honey, nigella, parsley, pepper, tarragon and turmeric
