From the most famous butcher in Italy (and possibly the world), we bring you Dario Cecchini's Red Pepper Mostarda!  Located in Tuscany and known by his red clogs, Dario is known, loved and respected by his peers as well as customers world-wide.

Dario Cecchini's Mostarda Mediterranea (Red Pepper Jelly) is made with a base of sweet red bell peppers and hot chili peppers, and is delicious with pork dishes, roasts, boiled beef, or served with cheeses or chocolate.

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.

Store at room temperature.  Once opened, keep refrigerated.

Ingredients:  white sugar, red bell peppers, red wine vinegar, pectin, spicy chili pepper.  Contains sulphites.
