Mustard oil is amazing! I use it to cook everything now. You know that hot spicy mustard sauce they have in Chinese restaurants? This stuff has that same fiery zing even though its just cooking oil. I like it almost as much as Worcestershire sauce.
Or not. :)
I take Olive Oyl on me spinach.
She said she didn’t go in for that kinky stuff but she’s a naughtier girl than she knew.
ghost chili oil.
My husband would love this....thanks!
I said do ya good, not kill you.
Hmmm, that might make a good tagline.
I personally can’t handle anything much stronger than your standard green or white onion, but if it was my last meal, I might as well jump in, feet first.
Olive oil and mustard powder. Soak for a couple of days then use. Olive oil is great stuff as a base for marinades. Soak your favourite herb in it for a few days and use.
You couldn’t eat anything made with that could you?
...or just buy oil pressed from mustard seed...aka mustard seed oil.
I love hot foods. The hottest I ever had was “The Man” sauce from Dixie’s BBQ here in Seattle. All you needed was to dip a toothpick in the sauce and rub it on your sandwich, and it was still too hot for most people. I had three scoops on my sandwich and almost died.
So - as someone who loves spicy stuff, but not mustard - does it taste like mustard or make food taste like mustard?
Anybody else try “The Man”???
Not one bite, not if I want to ses tomorrow. :)
But if I knew I wasn’t going to see tomorrow, it’d ne, “What the hey.”
(1) tablespoon of cayenne pepper,
(1) of cumin,
(1) of mustard powder
1/4 cup of pure honey,
1/4 cup of Wild Turkey 101
Blend thoroughly and then coat boneless chicken breasts, toss into hot skillet, while cooking add 1 teaspoon of lime juice, 1/2 cup of sliced white onion, 1/2 cup of chopped green onions, 1/4 cup of pure olive oil.
Serve over rice or noodles as preferred, have plenty of cold water on hand, it’s going to be spicy. :)
Okay but sometimes you can’t get it so you have to make your own. At least where I am.
It tastes like cooking oil but with the burning sensation in your nose that hot mustard has
Mustard oil is also being touted as a ‘health’ item. Since its so prevalent in Indian cooking I’m going to guess its part of the Ayurvedic health grouping.
So you waste our time with a vanity? Do you ever consider other peoples needs? What about Laz? Did you consider him before posting this drivel? I didn’t think so.
How bout I send you a few million garlic mustard plants - yeah that’ll probably work the same :-)
It is a banned chemical weapon that was used extensively during World War I.
Don’t you think you should ping him if you’re going to talk about him?
You did that for me.
Could y’all get on libertarian27’s weekly FReeper recipe ping? I could have missed this otherwise, and there are lots of folks on that thread who *love* their spicy stuff.
Just consider it a public service. :)
Yeah...I think I caught her act a few times in Tiajawana
Being an entrepreneur, I am always looking for a need that is not filled.
I love Indian spices and Chinese sauces. Problem is, I don’t trust foreign sources for such things. Some of those guys would poison a customer for a dollar.
Someone needs to start growing the herbs and spices and making organic spices and such right here in America.
I would buy it if I could find it.
I’ll have to try the mustard.
Two years ago I developed an allergy to peppers and tomatos.
I get hives and my throat swells up and I have difficulty breathing if I eat them. I can’t think of a worse curse. Everything good has tomatos or peppers or both.
The mustard oil might be just what I need to give things a zing.
That or black pepper.
About a decade ago I was in town visiting Microsoft. My hosts took me to Dixies for lunch one day. After going through the black lady's soup nazi-style ordering we went outside to eat.
An old black guy was wandering around with a pot ladling "The Man" onto folks sandwiches. My host told him to SLOP some on my sandwich. Which he did. Then they proceeded to laugh uproariously while I tried to eat it. It was too freaking hot.
This was 2001. They did put some of The Man into a very small pimento jar to take home with me as a souvenir. Do you know, 11 years later I STILL have that jar in my fridge! I use it, in very small amounts, to flavor spaghetti and chili sauces. It's never gone bad. I think mold is scared of it.
A few notes (a useful list that would be good to save):
Some chefs now regard the “ultimate” sauce as a 50/50 mix of Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco Sauce.
The two together are the western equivalent of Chinese Five Spice Powder, which is supposed to be a perfect blend of Yin and Yang ingredients to achieve culinary balance.
Except it is a near perfect blend of sweet-sour-salty-bitter-savory(umami)-spicy(piquance), so when added to recipes that have fats (fatty or oily taste), it covers most the taste spectrum, except for coolness (minty, menthol or camphor), astringent (alum or lemon), heartiness (as from alcohol), and numbness (such as from nutmeg or clove).
To create a functional balance of combinations of the above in your cooking turns ordinary food into something special.
Otherwise, it’s important to know that mustard and other spicy foods are known to irritate cells in the intestine that could impact inflammatory conditions from IBS to arthritis. However the cure for this is simple: peppermint. For some reason peppermint soothes these cells, and can help alleviate some of these problems.
So if you have such problems, but like spicy food to include mustard, be sure to finish off your meal with some real peppermint candies, or some Altoids.
Are you sure you aren’t thinking of nightshade(tomato, pepper, eggplant, etc)? I’ve never heard of the mustard family(cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli) having any harmful side effects.
That old black man was Mr. Porter, the owner. He died last year.
I had three scoops on my sandwich. And yes, it was like a nazi soup kitchen going through her line :>)
speaking of new things to try, try some Asian Sesame Oil on your salad with balsamic vinegar
Sesame noodles taste so much like they have peanut butter on them its freaky
What city was this?
OMG I love chinese ‘five spice’ sauces and basting for duck
slow cook a duck on a turning spit (one of thise Ron Popiel or Ronco products does a great job) until most of the fat drips away- keep basting it in the five spices and make a dipping sauce from it
you will be sucking every bit of meat off the bones
“Our research shows that peppermint acts through a specific anti-pain channel called TRPM8 to reduce pain sensing fibres, particularly those activated by mustard and chili. This is potentially the first step in determining a new type of mainstream clinical treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).”
Crazy Jerry's Mustard Gas
The wild mustard is in bloomright now all over the South.
Meh. Habanjero and most other chili peppers just drown out all other flavors. Why not just stick a fork in your eye while you eat? Worse still, they actually cause permanent damage to taste buds, so eventually no other food tastes much at all.
