Mostarda di Cremona isn't actually a mustard, rather it's summer fruits preserved in mustard-infused syrup. Use a mix of peaches, pears, plums, apricots, nectarines, quince, cherries, citrus rind. Makes for a beautiful holiday gift.
Vanilla is a dominant flavor in this jam, that meshes perfectly with the sweet tang of the black plums. The fresh Mint assists in a slight menthol cooling effect, but doesn’t overpower the flavor palate.
When you have more plums than you can eat, make some of this jam. The addition of licorice and star anise intensifies the plum flavor, making this an excellent jam for eating with your morning oatmeal or yogurt, or serving up over ice cream & crepes
