Brown Mustard Seeds Q&A


What is the difference between brown mustard seeds and black mustard seeds?

Brown mustard seeds are similar to black mustard seeds, but lighter in color and smaller in size.

What is the difference between brown mustard seeds and yellow mustard seeds?

Brown mustard seeds are smaller than yellow mustard seeds, and tend to have a stronger, more pungent flavor.

What do brown mustard seeds taste like?

Brown mustard seeds are earthy & pungent, with medium low heat. Dry roasting mustard seeds will help bring out their aroma and flavor.

How to use brown mustard seeds?

Use brown mustard seeds for pickling brines, or when making shrimp & crab boil blends. Add to Indian curries after dry roasting.

These mustard seeds rate at 2 or 3 on a heat scale from 1 to 10. The enzyme myrosine is what creates the pungent taste of mustard. This enzyme is activated by water. Thus, when cooked in oil, the taste of the seeds will remain subtle, and add a less pungent flavor to things such as curry pastes.
