Quince Cutting Preserves

The inspiration for our cutting preserves line, this little gem has been described as ‘crack’ for cheese. Made by hand over several days, this single-varietal ‘membrillo’ style preserve exemplifies the old tradition of steeping quince.
A labor of love – after a long, slow, cook, these hard, yellow, astringent and ancient fruits transform into a sweet with the likeness of honey but the complexity of tropical fruits. It's like a classic membrillo, but a tad softer for easy spreading.

 

It’s excellent with Manchego, cheddar, Parmigiano Reggiano and Beecher’s Flagship. Don’t forget the Serrano ham. Salud!

 

Ingredients: organic quinces, organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice

 

Handmade on Orcas Island; 4.5oz
