View Full Version : What's the difference between mustards?

Alright: in my dressings etc. I add dried yellow mustard powder.
How come when I grind mustard seeds to a powder, it's WAY stronger and HOTTER?
Is it a difference of mustard seeds?
Or is the yellow powder processed to be milder?

Hmm. My guess is the seeds still hold the essence in. When they process it into a powder it probably loses its potency and becomes milder. I've made a delicious mustard dressing by soaking the seeds then grinding them and adding agave for some sweetness. :D

I was wondering about this too. I tried to make my own mustard a while ago using yellow mustard powder, and it turned out gross. There was NO mustard flavor, it just tasted like...tasteless spicyness. Then I noticed there are both yellow and brown mustards, seeds and ground. Anyone know which actually tastes like normal mustard?

If you use the banana search you will find a very good recipe here for actual prepared raw mustard using both yellow and brown mustard seeds. It is by Raw Cutter.

Maybe all mine were brown....are brown ones stronger/hotter?
I need to go searching for some yeller ones ;)
