Mostarda (moss-tahr-dah) is an Italian preserve of fruits made in the town of Cremona in Lombardy. Mostarda usually contains whole cherries, pears, oranges, apricots, figs, plums and slices of melon and pumpkin and is preserved in a sugar syrup flavoured with mustard oil.

Mostarda is usually served with cold meat – particularly pork, ham and tongue.
