Mostarda di frutta (sometime also called only mostarda) is a Northern 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.
Another noble 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.
Other versions include mostarda di Voghera, mostarda siciliana, and mostarda bolognese.
