Mostarda is a traditional Italian condiment made from fresh and dried fruit, syrup, and spices. It is served with cooked meats, poultry, and charcuterie. Mostarda is a spicy relish or chutney that is sometimes called mostarda di Frutta or just mustard fruit.
But what makes mostarda unique is that either mustard powder or whole mustard seeds. The spicy mustard, the sweet fruit, and the acidic syrup, usually made from wine or vinegar, all work together to create a unique flavour. Especially the mustard gives the dish a big kick.
