today: Baobab Mustard

July 26, 2016

Baobab mustard is mild, fruity with a lemonly touch- an exciting combination of the whole seeds of brown Indian mustard, vinegar and fresh baobab fruit pulp.
The mustard seeds are carefully ground and immediately mixed with the cidre vinegar to preserve their naturally sharp flavour and high content of unsaturated oil and protein.
Enjoy with meat, sausages or on sandwiches.
