National Mustard Day

Five Food Finds about Mustard

  • Mustard is one of the world’s most ancient spices and oldest known condiments.
  • The name, mustard, comes from the Latin words “mustum ardens”, which means “burning wine” and refers to the flavor created by the spicy heat of the crushed mustard seeds mixed with the juice of unfermented wine grapes.
  • It is believed that mustard was first cultivated in India around 3000 BC, and later taken to Britain by the Romans who used it as a condiment and pickling spice.
  • Mustard was so enjoyed by the Romans that when they moved into Gaul (present day France) they took the mustard seed with them and planted it in the region of Burgundy.
  • The French mastered the making of mustard, and by the ninth century French monasteries were bringing in considerable income from mustard preparations.
