Mustard Fruit

zarquon Jan 20, 2010 01:48 PM

Does anyone know where I can buy mustard fruit in So. NH, or maybe No. Mass.? I used to buy it when I lived in Europe, and it is a personal favorite. I believe it is called "mostarda" in Italian, but it seemed to be popular in other parts of Europe as well, especially Switz. and Germany.

    I've never heard of mustard fruit, but a search brought me to this recipe, which doesn't seem too complicated. If all else fails, you might try your hand at making your own.

      I usually buy it online for my restaurant but I saw it at my local A&P in the" gourmet" cheese section last week.

        Thanks; we don't have A&P, but I'll check the fancy cheese section of some of our markets around here. BTW, I'm not too impressed with the selection of cheeses in the stores, we could use a good cheese shop in So. NH.

        I've been thinking of trying a recipe, but the mostardo I remember had some more exotic fruits in it, and I don't feel like buying qumquats, etc. for a small batch... maybe I'll just have to make a bigger batch and give some away.
