Dried Cherry Mostarda
This sweet, tangy, and slightly spicy Italian condiment is traditionally made from fresh, candied, or dried fruit, sugar, and mustard. A natural accompaniment to rich, full-flavored proteins like roast pork or duck, it's also excellent served alongside both hard and soft cheeses.
