Charred Cranberry Mostarda Recipe

Yield: 10-12 servings


  • 1 lb fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard seed
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala (or ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Grannie’s Horseradish Mustard


Over a high heat flame, char the cranberries until the skins begin to blacken and burst open. You can do this with either a torch over a sheet pan or in a fry basket over high flame on a grill.

Combine all the remaining ingredients with the charred cranberries in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook down until the cranberries are softened and burst open easily. This won’t take longer than ten minutes. Serve warm or cooled. This also makes a great condiment for leftover turkey sandwiches.
