Spicy Fig Compote
Pleasant, well balanced flavor
Our Spicy Fig Compote is made from an old Italian recipe for mostarda, or candied fruit with mustard seed. We have toned down the pungency of the mustard flavor so that it is more appealing to modern palates.
Aroma: intense, elegant bouquet.
Flavor: pleasant, well balanced flavor. Great fig taste. No additives.
The spice of the mustard and the sweetness of the green fig make for a versatile product that can be used in a variety of Italian dishes. Also, try serving it with Pecorino Toscano or other pungent cheeses like Pecorino Gran Cru.
