mustard is zinape

zinape = mustard (noun) (Some things Google found for "zinape": an unusual term; name of a school in Zimbabwe; user names; similar Zinapécuaro (often OCRed as Zinape'cuaro) is a municipality in the Mexican state of Michoacán)

Word derivation for "mustard" :
Basque = ziape, Finnish = sinappi
Miresua = zinape

This is a brand new word. I'm adding a word to show I'm still here.

Both the Basque word and the Finnish word are descendants of the Latin word for mustard. So the Miresua word appears derived from Latin too.

The word mustard appears in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland three times.
"HE might bite," Alice cautiously replied, not feeling at all anxious to have the experiment tried.

"Very true," said the Duchess: "flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is — 'Birds of a feather flock together.'"

"Only mustard isn't a bird," Alice remarked.
