Ich dachte immer, süßer Senf ist dieses full grain gedöns Ich mag den Standard-Senf am liebsten, also... yellow? (ich habe keine dieser Bezeichnungen da oben jemals wirklich gehört, vom Süßen abgesehen )
It's supposedly sweet and strong, although I don't generally like mustard so I don't really know if that's even true. It just happens to be what my parents buy so I use it too >w< (Although I wouldn't use it for cooking ahah)
Yeh, I also think standards of what's spicy when it comes to mustard varies so much between countries. Like the dijon mustard back in Austria always seemed so strong to me but then I moved to France and oh boy. Even the mild variety is real intense. The strong one...well let's just say your nasal passages will stay nicely clean. xD
Hahah oh yeah this 'strong' mustard of mine is not strong at all. Like...in a spicy way at least. Actually it's not strong in any other way either tbh. I am a huge loser when it comes to eating anything spicy and wouldn't be able to go anywhere near it were it actually spicy/strong.
It really depends for me what kind of spiciness it is...like I love ginger to make stuff hot but chillies for istance I can't stand. :/ I mean I can eat stuff with chilli spice but I just don't like how it stays in my mouth for eeveeer. I like the kind of spiciness that you feel while you're eating, but that doesn't linger any longer than that. :3
I can't stand ginger at all >w< Not because it's spicy, I just don't like how it tastes. It gives me headaches sometimes, I don't even understand why xD Same with coriander/cilantro. I'm really bad at eating hot chilis but if it's super mild I don't mind it. I also lovelovelove kimchi super much but I have to eat it with tons of rice because it's so hot ahah I'm like that typical white person who can't eat anything spicy ;v; Oh and pepper...ANY kind of pepper is just....NOPE. NOPE. A BIG NOPE. I skip pepper on every recipe. (It also triggers my migraines lol body WHY)
Nuuuu ginger rocks! Fresh, pickled, dried, powdered,...miammiam! OvO I just love spices and herbs in general. xD Oh gosh kimchi! YES! So delish! But I also need it not too spicy. xD I always used to think spicy food gave me migraines too but then I recently noticed I'm lactose intolerant so it's the dairy I had with it. xD"
The whole grain one. Never heard the French name for it before. I have it with my steak. Although I prefer the other yellow one for hotdogs. And I often have a cheese sandwich with herb mustard from a nearby shop. Although, I think it’s honey mustard with herbs in it. I’m not sure. I used honey mustard on rare occasions to make my own salad dressing.
Actually, is whole grain the same as seeded mustard? Because that’s the one I was thinking of.
The sad thing is that the French are so crazy about mustard yet you get so few varieties here. A crapload of different dijon and whole grain ones but that's pretty much it. For English mustard I need to go to a specific supermarket and for sweet and brown I need my mom to send them to me from Austria. Oh well sure, you get a few varieties on dijon, such as added honey, and I've found a curry one for instance but the base always tends to be dijon so it still has a similar underlying taste.
