Mustard, Black$7.25 – $19.60
Black Mustard, though very similar to Brown Mustard, comes from a different plant — the Brassica Nigra. The seeds are very flavorful, but have almost no aroma. Black Mustard is thought to be the seed of which Jesus spoke.
Cumin$8.50 – $24.30
Native to the Mediterranean and South Asia, Cumin is also a signature flavor for Central American and European cuisines. As a symbol of love and fidelity during the Middle Ages, wedding guests carried Cumin in their pockets, and wives of soldiers added it to baked bread for their husbands. Our Cumin is hand harvested, and has a high percentage of essential oils, delivering more powerful aromatics, and a slightly astringent, citrusy quality.
