Crushed Brown Mustard Seeds
Brown mustard seeds are great in sauerkraut or blended with other herbs to make a rub for lamb, beef or pork. Crushed brown mustard is commonly used in many Bavarian style blends and pairs well with sage, bay leaf, rosemary and thyme.".....the seede of mustard pounded with vinegar is an excellent sauce, good to be eaten with any grosse meates, either fish or flesh, because it doth help digestion, warmeth the stomache and provoketh appetite." - John Gerard (1623)
The flavor of crushed seeds is more predominant than whole seeds and can be used in shorter cooking processes to achieve a full, warm flavor. Brown seeds can be substituted for black, although Savory Spice Shop carries the difficult to find black seeds.
