QUINCE PASTE

Quince is a fruit that resembles a cross between and apple and a pear although its flesh is too tannic to eat raw. when cooked it turns a lovely dark apricot color. In Spain the quince is cooked down with sugar into a smooth paste called dulce de membrillo and is served in a block or a round. Our Artisan Quince Paste is the highest quality made with the highest quality fruit by slow production creating a highest percentage of fruit with 65°brix. Quince is naturally high in fiber due to its high pectin content. Quince paste is sweet and complex with a delicate floral aroma and pairs beautifully with Spanish cheeses, crispy Spanish tortas, roasted nuts, in salads, on buttered toast, with yogurt, foie gras, pates and of course Spanish wines
