Lizzie’s Handmade Cumbrian Mostarda is a rich compote-style concoction of dried apricots, prunes and figs in a luscious mustardy-sweet syrup. Inspired by Umbria but made in Cumbria, it’s one of those almost Christmassy deli-style treats that’ll turn an end of summer picnic lunch into a mini-Italian feast. Each spoonful of the mostarda is laden with fruit and great with a cheese board, smoked meats or even fish.
Fruity, fabulous and different, this is part of the Lizzie’s Handmade range – we spotted the Cumbrian Frutta Cotta (fruits in a spiced rum syrup made for both savoury or sweet dishes) which we’ve earmarked to try next.
Packed into the Cumbrian Mostarda you’ll find dried apricots, prunes, figs, wine vinegar, glace cherries, Hawkeshead Relish Honey Mustard and spices.
A Bronze Great Taste Award Winner and a perfect example of why British artisan food producers are blazing a trail these days.
