Clinton, Michigan - Eden Foods adds NEW Organic Yellow Mustard and a new label for Eden Organic Brown Mustard to its traditionally made condiments.
The mustard seed in Eden Mustard is organically grown on the North American high plains by those committed to building vital soil, cleansing the environment, and producing the safest, most delicious and nutritious food. Ninety-eight years of mustard crafting expertise goes into every jar.
Eden Organic Yellow Mustard is made from whole yellow mustard seed, known for its mild heat and mellow sweetness. The seeds are hammer milled into a stainless steel tank with pure water, organic apple cider vinegar, sea salt, organic turmeric, organic paprika, and organic garlic. It is blended and then smoothly ground on a stone mill. It is allowed to sit and meld for at least 48 hours before packing into glass jars. Simply the best ingredients, skillful preparation, and a superior recipe create the most wonderful mustard. It is mildly spicy and naturally sweet, the way real yellow mustard is supposed to be. For nutritious pleasure combine it with Eden Organic Sauerkraut.
Mustard is a member of the cabbage family. Its plant grows three to four feet high and produces bright yellow flowers that contain small round seeds. Yellow mustard seed (Brassica alba) and brown mustard seed (Brassica juncea) are each about three millimeters in diameter and round, but brown mustard is very hot and spicy due to chemicals contained in the bran's dark pigment, while yellow mustard's flavor is pleasant and just mildly spicy. Yellow mustard is also known as sweet mustard or American mustard.
Commercial mustards are often made with mustard bran or a combination of seeds and bran. Most contain artificial coloring agents, synthetic additives, poor quality salt, refined sugar, and irradiated spices. Furthermore, most contain refined vinegar, an acetic acid concoction derived from the petrochemical and coal tar industry. Regrettably, most organic mustards today are made from this distilled vinegar, irradiated spices, and other less than tasty ingredients.
Eden Organic Mustards are made the traditional way with patient ageing, the finest traditionally made organic apple cider vinegar, ultra-smooth Portuguese sea salt, organic herbs and organic spices. Eden's cider vinegar contains 'mother', a visible friendly bacterium present only in the world's most healthful raw vinegars.
Thousands of folk remedies call for mustard to soothe and cure. It has a warming thermal quality, is a diuretic, and a blood purifier. It is also a stimulant for body energy, improves circulation and warmth. Used topically in a paste, mustard increases blood flow to the skin, relieves congestion, and eases inflammation.
The most famous quote about mustard is found in the New Testament, Matthew 17:19-21, where Jesus says to the disciples, "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 for you."
