Re: Mostarda

Mostada is generally used as an accompaniment to meat and cheese, I've also heard of it being good with pan-fried trout.

Its good in meaty or cheesy sandwiches.

Apart from that, I've not come across any recipes using it as an ingredient.

Re: Mostarda

We have used it for a raviolo filling at the restaurant. Serve 2 or 3 medium - large raviolo with a few slices of roasted pork... the sweetness of the fruit works well with pork!

Re: Mostarda

DB27 - that sounds brilliant - I'll definitely give it a go.

Hadn't thought of using raviolo as a sort of condiment container.
