Taste and usage
Mustard Cress has a very pungent taste, not easily recognised by the consumer. Most would call it 'pepper' or something similar. A mashed potato with some butter and a dot of Mustard Cress gives a totally new appearance to an old product.
Mustard Cress is a real traditional Dutch product, and even the seeds are produced in Holland. In summertime fields are coloured by rapeseed and mustard production. Most mustard plants are used for green-fertilisation. However, both Koppert Cress B.V. and the mustard industry harvest the seeds for further processing.
Availability and storage
Mustard Cress is available year round and can easily be stored for up to ten days at a temperature of 2-4°C.
