pear moustarda di frutta with new deal spiced pear liqueur

Pear Mostarda di Frutta

Pear Mostarda di Frutta is to ham what cranberry sauce is to turkey. This robust condiment rides the line between sweet and savory with a pop of boozy goodness thanks to the healthy splash of Spiced Pear Liqueur. Serve with soft rolls, Whiskey & Apricot Glazed Ham, cheddar, gin pickles, Spiced Pear Hot Toddies and Wheat Whiskey Sours for a festive and casual holiday hang.

  • ½ cup dried apricots, chopped
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • 1 fresh pear, cored and chopped
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 TBSP dijon mustard (preferably the grainy style)
  • 1 TBSP brown mustard seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ cup New Deal Spiced Pear Liqueur
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine all of the fruit, sugar, mustard, mustard seeds, bay leaves, Spiced Pear Liqueur, and 1 cup of water in a medium sauce pan set over medium heat. Allow to come to a soft boil then reduce to medium-low heat. Cook until the fruit has softened and the liquid has thickened (the texture should be jam-like), about 40-50 minutes.
  2. Allow to cool and serve with Whiskey & Apricot Glazed Ham, Gin Pickles, sliced sharp cheddar cheese, and other condiments of your liking.
