Apples, Cranberries, Grapes, Pears, Quince

Quince is a fruit shaped like a combination of an apple and a pear. It has a hard exterior and a taste that is acidic and bitter before it is cooked. When cooked, it is used to make a dark-brown jelly-like paste with a sweet and spicy taste to complement cheese and charcuterie platters. This paste is known as membrillo in Spain and Portugal—for the recipe, click here.
