Anybody heard of these? Where to buy? What do they taste like?

I mentioned them and some information I dug up on them back in your thread where we were discussing pumpkin seeds and their AA profile. I am not sure if anyone else responded with extra information. I will try to find that thread. Basically, they are a type of wild mustard seed.

Just remembered their common name: tumble mustard.

I haven't had any luck finding somewhere to buy some, but now that you have reminded me of them, I will start looking again.

I was wondering how close it is to some typical mustards in our diet and see quite a dramatic shift in the relationship between Carbs and Fats, otherwise I think as a whole they maych up faily closely. I am still trying to differentiate btween mustards that are say in an Indian diet and the Latin Name being used. I was woundering if is out there right under my nose. But I haven't the wherewithall to determine, using the internet how closley these mustards relate, or much about indiviual mustards???

If you open the following 2 links in seperate windows.
you can cycle (mouse click) to do a quick comparison, as they will overlay each other as you click. (easy way to see differnces)

Good point, Vegan Joe. Now I just need to figure out how to make a good homemade mustard; all of my attempts have been disastrous.

They are definitely very close to each other. The tumble mustard does look a bit better nutritionally, but the logistics of finding some (and having them be affordable) seems to be a problem.

Did you guys ever find a place to buy these? I'm REALLY interested in buying them, (preferably organic) but have been Google searching forever and can't find a place that sells them.

Khakshir and Tumble mustard are different.
