13th & 14th Century Mustard Set

This brings our two medieval mustards together as a gift set. These two spiced honey mustards from medieval recipes are the perfect addition to any history lover's food cupboard!

 

13th Century Icelandic Mustard

This Mustard is based upon an Icelandic recipe from the 1200s, recorded in a 15th century collection of recipes. The result is a deliciously mild mustard, sweetened with honey, and spiced with cinnamon and anise. It goes particularly well with lighter meats such as chicken, fish and cheese.

 

14th Century Parisian Mustard

This mustard follows a 1393 recipe (Le Ménagier de Paris), using Cinnamon, Ginger, Grains of Paradise, Nutmeg & Galingale to add spice to a honeyed wholegrain mustard. The recipe from Le Ménagier de Paris directs to use 'spices left over from making jelly, claret, hypocras or sauces', so we have used the spices described in the hypocras (mulled wine) recipe from the same book.

 

Mustard was possibly the most popular of all medieval spices, and is sometimes referred to as the poor-man's spice, but we do see it being used in high status households as well. It was often flavoured with spices as well.
