One of our favorite underdogs that we make is our Mostarda – it’s sweet upfront with a nice amount of fruit flavor with nice mellow heat that pairs amazing well with rich meats, grilled sausages, or a myriad of cheeses. It’s made using locally grown and dried fruits, hand-selected mustard seeds, all mixed, cooked and bottled by our preservationist. The mostarda may be a bit intimidating at first, but one bite is really all that is needed to get a taste of this fantastic mustard.

For more inspiration, we’ve included an ideal pairing to it’s fantastic flavor – lamb meatballs.
