Apple and Pepper Mostarda

Mostarda is an Italian chutney with a little mustard background. You can make it less sweet and more savory by adding more or less mustard. Use whatever fruit you have on hand. I always use both fresh and dried fruit. Serve with cheese, charcuterie, pork, or duck.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
