Mostardo di Cremona  Italian Mustard Fruits

Mostardo di Cremona Italian Mustard Fruits

This traditional Italian condiment is perfect to serve with ham off the bone or other cold meats and cheese. Use firm apricots and figs for the Mostardo as you need them to retain their shape. Soft fruit will break down during cooking. All the dried fruits can be found in the loose bins at good supermarkets. If you want a fiery mostarda, increase the quantity of hot English mustard to half a cup or add a pinch of ground cayenne pepper to the recipe.
