The spice is right #1: Eggs in Mustard Sauce

The spice is rightBarbara from Tigers and Strawberries is announcing a new monthly event: The spice is right. This month theme are ancient spices. Mustard is one of the first spices known to humans. The spice is known in China since 3000 years and reached Europe over Asia Minor . Mustard seeds are appetizing, digestive and expectorant.

Mustard is not only an ancient spice but also an ancient remedy. Taken internally mustard helps against gastro-intestinal and liver-bile discomforts. Mustard plasters help against rheumatic discomforts and mustard poultice are helpful with a sore throat.

For spices the seeds are used in toto, as a powder or as a condiment. The the greens can be used too, but this would be a herb.

The dish I chose is made with coarse-grained dijon mustard. I love Eggs in Mustard Sauce since my childhood and I use the dish also for the German Cooking Event: Eggs
