Mostarda Mediterranea is a red pepper jelly, made with a base of sweet red bell peppers and hot chili peppers. It is delicious with pork dishes, roasts, boiled beef, or served with cheeses or chocolate.

Dario tells us, "The origins of this sauce are to be found in ancient times, in old monasteries where patient monks manufactured it to preserve fruit and vegetables, in order to avoid that they would go bad. In addition, given that during the winter the monasteries were for long periods in solitary confinement without any contact with the outside world, making this sauce was also an easy way to make sure they had some preserves for those times.
And because you can eat this sauce with almost any dish, the monks were sure to have a great condiment for their tables."
