This spicy, tangy condiment adds a kick to anything from mayonnaise and tuna salad sandwiches, to hot dogs with sauerkraut on the side of your plate! The yellow mustard seed is tiny, about the size of a poppy or sesame. It's native to Europe and Asia but has since spread all around the world because it can be grown in practically any climate where sufficient sunlight shines on its leaves. The seeds are a very potent spice that when ground release an intense flavor with a hot punch - perfect for spicing up your sandwiches!
