Fruited Mostarda
At the start of the 20th century, Luigi Lazzaris & Son founded a small pastry shop in Conegliano Veneto, Italy. After much experimenting, he invented a sweet, spicy delicacy by mixing sugar, quince, candied fruit, and mustard oil together. Over the past 100 years, his confection has won many prizes. Although it was originally produced for a Christmas treat, mostarda is now consumed all year round.

Mostardas originated in the 17th century when farming families prepared a special flour, mustard, vinegar, candied fruit, and wine must dressing (wine must is how the recipe adopted the name mostarda) for their holiday celebrations. Modern mostarda is made from fruit, sugar and mustard oil. An excellent accompaniment to game, hams and fresh or slightly mature cheeses.
