Whole Mustard Seed is used in summer sausage and Polish sausage as well as pickling vegetables. They have a mild, nutty flavor when used whole, but release a pungent, sharp taste when crushed or ground. To use whole mustard seeds, you can toast them in a dry skillet to enhance their flavor before incorporating them into your recipe, or add them directly to pickling solutions for a tangy kick.

    I make a fair amount of sausage for a hobbyist – 300 to 400 yards of brats and other wurst per year. I buy all my casing and bulk spices from The Sausage Maker. I have tried buying casings other places to my disappointment. I can buy spices locally but not easily in the quantities I use. So the combination of quality, price and service makes using TSM a no-brainer for me.

    I’ve purchased a number of different spices from the sausage maker, all of them are quite fresh and at a great price. Containers such as these, have mostly disappeared from the local stores around here. But then again, the shipping department at the sausage maker, is so fast that it makes a trip to town unnecessary.

    Have had some difficulty finding mustard seed. When I can find it, all I can find are tiny jars. This is perfect and will be put to use during pickling season.

    Other than a problem trying to access the “cart icon” on the web page, the prices are great, service is great and the product is excellent quality and fresh. Key ingredients in a good sausage.
    Thank you!

    Can’t say enough about the products and service we receive from the Sausage Maker. Everything we order is top notched and produces a delicious sausage or salami every time.

  49. Mary Lou Chernik (verified owner)

    I ordered spices that I use in making cucumber pickles and beet pickles. The order was received in time for canning, they all smelled amazing (not like old spices from the supermarket). In addition, the spices didn’t break my budget!

    I was pleased to find your website. You have a lot of spices that are priced good.
    Thanks so much for having the free shipping, it helped out a lot.
