Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Quince Paste (Membrillo) is what the best dressed holiday cheese plate is accessorizing with. Thankfully this tasty treat is easy to make.
An ancient fruit, preserved as a sweet to serve with tea or with cheese. I made the lighter Sicilian version, more like a fruit paste. The Spanish version Membrillo is cooked to a darker color.
Take a walk on the wild side. It is all about consistency; jams you dollop but cheeses you slice.
