The history of mustard

Did you know …


                                                Prepared mustard dates back thousands of years to

                                                the early Romans, who used to grind mustard seeds

                                                and mix them with wine into a paste not much

                                                different from the prepared mustards we know today.


                                                German lore advises a bride to sew mustard seeds

                                                into the hem of her wedding dress to assure her

                                                dominance of the household.


                                                In Denmark, and India, it's thought that spreading

                                                mustard seeds around the exterior of the home will

                                                keep out evil spirits.
