Whole brown mustard seed
Black mustard is an ancient plant that has been in cultivation for thousands of years and remains an important trade crop today. The seed is used to make a variety of condiments, most notably the vinegar-based mustard used as sandwich spread and dipping sauce.
Although mustard seeds look and smell mild, they heat up in flavor when crushed or ground and introduced to cold water. This is because a sulphur compound is produced by the interaction between two chemical components in the seeds — myrosin and sinigrin, an enzyme and glycoside, respectively. It's interesting to note that this reaction doesn't occur to this degree if hot water or vinegar is used instead, or if salt is added to the mixture.
