Technically a conserve, savor is a melange of quince, apple and pear, with almonds and walnuts, plus any other nuts that you like; we used hazelnuts. Recipe by Marzia Brigante from the Punk Domestics trip to Italy in January, 2012.
Quince are an aromatic fruit similar to apples or pears. I am lucky enough to have 2 trees growing in my backyard. Every year I look forward to making brandied quince, and most of all, quince paste; also known as membrillo.
