With its spicy flavour and dark red, ruffled leaves, scarlet frills mustard is ideal as a garnish in gourmet cuisines. Its peppery bite pairs well with rich meats and Asian cuisine, but it can also add a burst of flavour to salads.
This variety of mustard is herbaceous, nutty and slightly sweet, with an intense peppery bite at the end. Its burgundy, heart-shaped serrated leaves on a wispy stem are smooth and crisp. Red mustard is best enjoyed raw in salads, as well as in Asian and South American dishes.
