At The Wine Source we have lots of items that would make great gifts for the foodie in your life. If you’re feeling a little stumped on what to get for your crazy adventurous food lover, might I recommend picking up a jar or two of Casa Forcello Mostarda?

MostardaMostarda is a great Italian spread that combines the sweetnees of fruit with the kick of mustard seed. Made simply with fruit, sugar, lemon and mustard essence, these spreads are a delightful and unusual balance of sweet and spicy. They are a classic pairing with rich cured or cooked meats, and they also make an excellent accompaniment to many cheeses. And, as a baker, my mind has been spinning with interesting ways to incorporate these into a baked good! With flavors ranging from pear to crab apple to white watermelon, there is one out there for every palette.
