    I saw only one size of the black mustard last night. I don't know if it was tiny or micro tiny, but it was pretty small. Not gonna worry about it. =)

    However, I just got back from my local spice shop with a jar of juniper berries. Good to go for Cat's Ribs (well, except for the ribs).

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

    I’ve usually used the smaller black mustard seeds and yellow mustard seeds, since that’s what my mom always used. I don’t think there is a discernible difference in flavor.

    Maybe this’ll help? Cut and pasted from a website...

    1. The distinction between black and brown mustard is hard as both the seeds have almost the similar characteristics.
    2. When compared to the brown mustards, the black mustards are a little bigger in size.
    3. Though it is hard to make out a difference in the flavour, the black mustards have a slightly strong flavour than the brown mustard.
    4. When brown mustards are mainly used for seasoning foods, black mustards are mainly used for regular cooking.
    5. The black mustards, which come from Brassica nigra, are popular in Asia Minor and Middle East. The brown mustard, which is derived from Brassica juncea, has its origins in the Himalayas.

    looks about right. Bigger than poppy seeds, but not by a lot.

    If you like your mustard pungent, try soaking for 24 hours in the refrigerator water and vinegar just enough to cover the seeds.

    After a day, hit the seed water and vinegar mixture with a stick blender. 

    Let that sit in the fridge for another day.

    If you want really hot mustard, don't soak in vinegar.  Add vinegar later. 

    Acids denature the enzyme that makes the hot compounds.  Vinegar neutralizes that enzyme. To activate the enzymes, add water, grind, blend, etc. Freeze the heat with vinegar.  The heat will eventually fade, it's really hot right after you mix it up.
