Mostarda di Cremona
Makes 8 x 450g (1 lb) jars
Based on an original Northern Italian recipe dating back to the 14th century; soft, seasonal fruits are preserved in distinctively flavoured syrup and layered into preserving jars. Traditionally made in late summer, to allow time for the flavours to mature and be ready to enjoy this unusual preserve at Christmas time with cold meats and cheeses. Makes a delicious gift for any food lover.
