Spanish quince / Pablo Neustadt – ICEX

Sunny and yellow, oblong and irregular, Spanish quince is a diamond in the rough, transformed from an astringent and tart fruit into a sweet fruit paste that makes an exquisite counterpoint when paired when any number of types of cheeses, or creatively formed into gastronomic delights by top-notch Spanish chefs like José Andrés and José Pizarro – both of whom make their home outside Spanish borders (the USA and the UK respectively), attesting to the international appeal of this special fruit.

For ideas on how to put this sweet membrillo paste on your menu, look no further than this simple pairing on Foods and Wines from Spain.
