Mostarda di Cremona

Mostarda (also called mostarda di frutta) is an Italian condiment made of candied fruit and a mustard-flavoured syrup. Commercially the essential oil of mustard is employed, which has the advantage of transparency; in home cooking, mustard powder heated in white wine may be used.[1][2]

Traditionally mostarda was served with boiled meats,[3] the bollito misto which is a speciality of northern Italian cooking. More recently it has become a popular accompaniment to cheeses.


Mostarda di Cremona or mostarda cremonese (from Cremona) is made with several kinds of different fruit, and is the version that typifies mostarda di frutta.[4]

Mostarda di Mantova (also called mostarda di mele campanine or mostarda mantovana) is made from small, sour green apples called mele Campanine.[4]

Another notable mostarda is mostarda vicentina, which is a speciality of the town of Vicenza (Veneto); it is characterized by a jam-like consistency and the use of quince (mele cotogne) as its main ingredient.[3]

Other versions include mostarda di Voghera, mostarda siciliana, and mostarda bolognese.
