Mathew 17:20 quotes Jesus Christ as saying “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Christ was right to compare the power of faith to the humble mustard seed. This wild edible, which produces between 2000 and 3500 seeds measuring one to two millimeters in length per year, has managed to every corner of the earth; the plant thrives in nearly every environment, even found in the artic fields of Greenland. We’ve been cultivating field mustard for over 3000 years, for good reason.
Coming up in late winter or early spring, field mustard is one of the most valuable wild foods. The leaves are highly prized as a great source of leafy greens for salads or a replacement for spinach. The younger leaves are best, as the flavor becomes too bitter to eat as the plant matures; this bitterness can be reduced by boiling the leaves. The flowers it produces can be boiled or pickled and enjoyed as an interesting change up in culinary variety. If you love mustard, you can utilize the seeds to make your own; just grind them up and mix with vinegar and salt. Field mustard is in the same family as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, turnips, and kale among others, and its roots, known as a forage turnip, are a great source of nutrition; you can treat the roots as any other root vegetable and substitute it in your cooking. While it can be harmful for grazing animals (dairy cows that eat the plant produce milk that tastes terrible, and the plant upsets their stomachs) field mustard can bolter your gardening efforts; it can be used as a winter annual, rotational crop, or in row crop production, helping to prevent erosion, suppress weeds and pests, and alleviate soil compaction. Field mustard is a plentiful, nutritious, and delicious addition to any forager’s repertoire.
