    Default Anyone make their own English or other mustard?

    Just wondered.........I love this stuff from jars but I imagine it will be quite easy to make!

    We had a go at making it with Colmans mustard powder (which Morrisons have stopped selling now, boo hiss!), but we couldn't get it to taste like Colmans ready made stuff. It says 'spice' on the ingredients list, but we couldn't work out what that is... If anybody's tried it and got a good recipe, I'd be interested
    What would you grow to get the seeds to make the mustard flour with? The seeds that you grow 'mustard & cress' with?

    That was what I was on about Sarah...growing my own!

    I don't know.........probably sow a bit of Mustard seed, wait until it seeds and make the whatjamacallit!
    Must be different tpes though, for English, French etc????????

    PS Ooops sorry.....just re-read the original thread title in which I didn't make myself particularily clear........appologies Sarah!

    The 'mustard and cress' (the Mustard part anyway, round seeds) should grow all right. Before the arrival of OSR (yuck!), when we saw yellow fields, we were told it was 'mustard', presumably mainly grown for 'green manure' but some for condiment making. The plants might be as big as a 'gone to seed' cabbage (same family) although I haven't ever seen one close up (that I know of).
    Flowers come in too many colours to see the world in black-and-white.
