edited 4:04AM in EggHead Forum
I wanted to do a couple of slabs of baby backs tomorrow using Cat's recipe.I've got all the ingredients for the rub except the black mustard seeds.All I see in the Penzeys catalog is yellow and brown.I was wondering if anybody knows where to get the black mustard seeds or if I can use a substitute.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Charly,[p]The black mustard seeds have become almost impossible to find. The brown mustard seed has a flavor that is very close to the black and makes a good substitute.[p]Spin

    Charly,[p]Black mustard seeds are rarely imported anymore. The brown ones will work just fine.[p]Cathy

    Charly, the brown work fine and I've followed that recipe three times - those are different for sure! In an earlier Penzeys catologue they stated that the black were no longer available as I recall and said the brown were essentially the same. Besides you're only using 1T anyway...
