The name of mustard , as we know it today, appears in France in 1220, moustarde , derived from the Latin word mustum ardens , or what is the same, burning must .

Around the same time it appears in Spanish with the name of mustard and in Italian as shown. Despite this, it is known that the Chinese, 3,000 years ago, already cultivated this plant for their consumption, both medical and food.

In Greece it was used as a condiment and even the great Pythagoras claimed that it sharpened the wit. The Romans used it both as a medicinal plant and as a seasoning and flavoring for food and drinks.

In the Middle Ages it was when this plant became very popular in Europe since it was used as a condiment for meat, with the intention in many cases of concealing its poor condition due to the difficulties of conservation. It is in the 13th century when the preparation of mustard in sauce appears and becomes famous in Dijón .

A lot of ideas so that your kitchen has an exotic touch and little by little at home, enjoy new flavors.
