If you would like to speak about Mustard, we have already collected the information for you. The text and images are taken from the book: Mustard by the writer André Delcart.
Some information about mustard:
- Mustard is made from mustard seeds, vinegar, salt, and spices. The sharpness of the mustard is due to the mustard seed. There are different types of mustard seeds. The most used are yellow mustard seed, brown mustard seed and oriental mustard seed. Our mustard contains a combination of all these 3 types.
- The vinegar makes the mustard taste a bit sour. By using different types of vinegar, you get a slightly different taste. Think of apple cider vinegar, wine vinegar, herbal vinegar. There are of course many more varieties.
- Mustard is a condiment nowadays and is widely used in the kitchen. In addition, we of course also eat it on snacks, such as cheese, croquettes, bitterballen, meatballs, etc. By using mustard with the fat “bite”, the food is digested better, this is because there are essential oils in mustard seed. (So it is no coincidence that you always get a little mustard with your croquette at the snack bar).
- Mustard used to be a medicine. Mustard is still widely prescribed by naturopaths. Mustard seeds can lower blood pressure.
When the mustard is made in our factory, it is packed in various jars, tubes and buckets, but also in 1000 kg tanks or even in 25,000 kg tankers. The pots, tubes and buckets go to various distribution centers of purchasing companies and from there they go to the shops. The mustard in the large packaging (tanks and tankers) is often further processed in sauces, such as, for example, mayonnaise.
You can also make mustard yourself by mixing different ingredients. You must first soak the mustard seeds in the vinegar and water and then grind them.
