Mustard is a member of the cabbage Cruciferae family. It's been used as a healing herb throughout history and is one of the world's most ancient spices. Five centuries before the birth of Jesus, Pythagorus, the Greek mathematician and philosopher wrote of mustard's health promoting qualities. Mustard was used widely in China and Africa centuries earlier. Jesus immortalized mustard seed in His famous quote Matthew 17:19-21 where he says, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you."
