I'm After White Mustard Seeds

I am wanting to make a rhubarb chutney which uses white mustard seeds. I can get yellow and brown, but no white. Any suggestions?

Pam - I've just sent you my contact details at your store.

Thanks Rae. I just checked at Binn Inn Masterton and they only have yellow or brown, so hopefully you might see them in your travels.

I just found this interesting info and they say that white mustard seeds are actually white in colour! !
Mustard seeds are from the mustard plant, which is a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. While there are approximately forty different varieties of mustard plants, there are three principal types used to make mustard seeds: black mustard (Brassica nigra), white mustard (Brassica alba) and brown mustard (Brassica juncea). Black mustard seeds have the most pungent taste, while white mustard seeds, which are actually yellow in color, are the most mild and are the ones used to make American yellow mustard. Brown mustard, which is actually dark yellow in color, has a pungent acrid taste and is the type used to make Dijon mustard.

Hi Pam,

I'm sorry to say I had no luck in the Nelson Region's 3 Bin Inns.
Maybe timetable will see this and offer you the same help from Gore ...
Good luck, Rae

Hi Rae, thank you for trying, but I bought yellow yesterday ( apparently, they are classed as white! - see above info) so I have made my rhubarb chutney ( eight jars) Your offer was very much appreciated Rae.
