The origins of mustard are said to go back to an ancient recipe that included a mixture of mustard seeds ground up in grape must (unfermented grape juice). The word mustard comes from the latin Mustum Ardens loosely translated as burning grape must. Today, that recipe is kept alive in what is known as Violette Mustard. More commonly found today are mustards made with a combination of ground mustard and vinegar, beer or other acidic liquid. We select mustards that offer classically strong flavors in some cases with the addition of other flavorful ingredients
