Mustard Seeds

I'm going to try my hand at homemade mustard for gift giving. Where's my best bet for mustard seeds in the Woburn/Burlington area ?

    Ordinary mustard seeds (McCormick) are sold in supermarket spice aisles but I imagine you could find a variety in Burlington at H-Mart, China Merchandise, and the small Indian market (Raja & Rama's, or a similar name) on 3A in that strip of stores on the east side of the street beyond Shaw's.

      The Indian market is probably your best bet, because you should be able to get a HUGE bag for very cheap. Like 8 ounces for a few dollars.

      Penzey's in Arlington Center (on the #77 bus from Harvard Sq. "T" station) has whole mustard seeds, both yellow and brown, for $2.70 for 1/2 a pound. Under $5.00 for a pound.

        Indian markets sell 7 oz. bags for .99. I got mine in Framingham.
