Yellow mustard seeds are ideal for pickling vegetables and other foods and lending a hot, sharp and slightly sour flavor that so many people love. Yellow mustard seed can also, of course, be ground to make homemade mustard or added to a spicy dry rub. Did you know that yellow mustard isn’t actually yellow? Though these mustard seeds have a faint, curry-colored exterior, their grounds are white. Yellow mustards are typically mixed with either tarragon or turmeric. Dijon mustard, for example, has no added spices for colorings, and therefore has a much lighter color and mild mustard flavor. Yellow mustard seeds come from a flowering plant in the same family as brown or black mustard, wasabi, watercress, horseradish, and arugula, sharing a spicy and pungent group of chemicals that lend the telltale flavor.
