Dear Brothers and Sisters,
How are you doing today? Have you ever seen black mustard seeds?
In Sapa, people often cultivate black mustard plants. This sort of plant bears black mustard seeds.
Black mustard seeds usually have a dark brown colour. The seeds are smaller than sesame seeds, and look like tiny balls. Even so, these tiny seeds can sprout from soil and grow into black mustard plants with beautiful yellow flowers in large fields.
Besides being used for cultivation, people also use black mustard seeds as a spice, as the seeds have a pungent and spicy taste. Black mustard seeds are one of the main ingredients used to make mustard sauce. In Vietnamese, we commonly call this kind of sauce “Mù tạt”.
It’s such a big surprise for me to learn that black mustard seeds have so many benefits. Though the seeds are tiny, they are so useful. I’m really impressed by them.
Have a happy day.
