A traditional European fruit used for cooking, Quince has a unique, mildly sweet and aromatic quality. Coupled with a high pectin content, this makes them perfect for mixing with apples and pears for sweet sauces, pies, jellies, or jams. A popular 100% quince jam known as 'membrillo' is a perfect companion for soft cheese and crackers! Also enjoyable in some savory dishes; we recommend large chunks cooked alongside potatoes in a dark curry.
Large, yellow-green fruits with a ripe yellow blush must be peeled and cooked (not eaten fresh) due to the tannic nature of the fruit.
