Quince Fruit Paste Spain 300 g San Lorenzo

SKU: 214200 | San Lorenzo

Quince is a fruit native to the Mediterranean, was much loved by the ancient Greeks and Romans, and is still enjoyed today by many cultures worldwide. It is not an easy fruit to prepare, as it needs to be poached or cooked before it can be used in recipes. Quince paste is a wonderful accompaniment to cheese and crackers. You can also serve it for breakfast in place of jam. It is delicious as a filling in baked goods and can be swirled into a meat sauce to add good exotic fruit flavour for meats like roast pork.
