Sun Basket is proud to source the organic ingredients indicated below. On the rare occasion we are unable to meet our organic promise, we'll put a note in your bag.
  • 1 organic red onion
  • 2 organic nectarines or other stone fruit
  • 1 teaspoon Urfa chile flakes (optional)
  • Sun Basket mostarda base (maple syrup - apple cider vinegar - whole grain mustard)
  • 2 fresh mild Italian pork sausages (about ¼ pound each)
  • 1 or 2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
  • 1 bunch organic mustard greens or other leafy greens (about ¾ pound)

Grill It

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.

Wash produce before use


Make the mostarda

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ⅓ cup [⅔ cup].
  • Cut the nectarines in half and remove the pits; cut the fruit into ½-inch pieces.
In a medium sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons ghee, butter, or oil (from your pantry) until hot but not smoking. Stir in the onion, season with salt and as much Urfa chile as you like, and cook until the onion starts to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the nectarines and cook until they begin to release their juices, 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the mostarda base and ½ cup [1 cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and the nectarines begin to fall apart, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the sausages.


Prep and cook the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning once, until well browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate to rest. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the mustard greens.


Prep and cook the mustard greens

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens; coarsely chop the greens.
In the same pan used for the sausages, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Working in batches if needed, add the mustard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the mustard greens to individual plates and top with the sausages. Spoon the mostarda over both and serve.
