I love wholegrain mustards and I was excited to be selected to review Sids mustard selection. The Fenugreek one interested me the most. Fenugreek is one of the things people often suggest to help boost milk supply for lactating mothers. As my supply is important to me and my toddler still, I wanted to see if this had an effect. The ingredients label wasn't too clear on whether there was Fenugreek in this or not though.
I have tried this is several ways. Firstly I decided to make a nice cheesy mustard loaf of bread. Into my bread-maker, I added warm water, bread/flour mix, some yeast, grated cheese and two tablespoons of this mustard. I put it on to go and it took approximately 3 and a half hours to make. When I walked into my house after an outing I was hit by the delicious mustardy smell.
We had a slice or two of this bread with our dinner than night. Warm crusty bread with melting butter was a huge hit with everyone. In fact, of everything on our plates that night the bread was the only thing to get gobbled up completely by every eater. That is quite impressive as the mustard taste was present as well as the heat.
The next thing I tried was mixing some of this mustard into some softened butter. I then used this as a spread onto my cheese scones for lunch one day at work. It was a great addition to my tomato soup. The butter softened the vinegar flavour, and gave the soup a boost of mustard flavour as well. This mustard has a real vinegar zing, but its not unpleasant (I usually hate vinegar anything). I'm pleased to say I did notice an increase in my milk supply too.
