Pork and stone fruits are a classic pairing. Our summery mostarda is an easy Italian condiment, made even easier as we include our premade mostarda base in your box.
In your bag
- 1 or 2 organic shallots
- 2 organic peaches or other stone fruit
- ½ teaspoon Urfa chile flakes (optional)
- Sun Basket mostarda base (maple syrup - apple cider vinegar - whole grain Dijon mustard)
- 2 fresh mild Italian pork sausages (about ¼ pound each; contain pork and spices)
- 1 or 2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
- ¾ pound organic mustard greens or other leafy greens
Mostarda, a chutney-like Italian condiment, is made with fruit that’s slow-cooked in a mustard-infused blend of seasonings. The tangy-sweet relish is as easy to make as it is versatile. In addition to grilled meats, it can be served as part of a cheese course, spread on a sandwich, or eaten with a spoon.
Make It Ahead
The stone fruit mostarda (Step 1) can be made up to 1 day ahead. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate. When ready to serve, gently rewarm the mostarda, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water to loosen it if needed, as you proceed with Steps 2 and 3.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. In a medium sauce pot on the stovetop, add the pork sausages and enough beer, water, or a mixture to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, reduce to a vigorous simmer, and cook until the sausages are firm but not yet cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Set the sausages on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning occasionally, until the skin is blistered and the sausages are cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
