I am a mustard lover from way back. Even as a child I preferred a dollop of mustard on my burnt sausages to the more obvious tomato sauce that my siblings went for.
Apparently mustard has been around since ancient Roman times and there is even a mustard recipe appearing in a compiled Roman cookbook from the late 4th century which calls for a mix of mustard seeds, pepper, caraway, lovage, coriander seeds, dill, celery, thyme, oregano, onion, honey, vinegar, fish sauce and oil, all ground up and designed to hit the feasting table as a glaze on a spit roasted boar. Sounds delish. This is my version of that Ancient recipe. And I don't mind saying, we are a bit addicted. Hope you will love it too! Now where did I put that wild boar??
