Valliser Quince Paste (Membrillo / Cotognata) - 350 grams

Country of Origin: Spain
City / Village: Barcelona

Made according to an age-old recipe in Spain, this quince paste is what is known as "membrillo" in Spanish or "cotognata" in Italian. Quince is naturally a fairly unpalatable fruit. However, when cooked slowly with the right amount of sugar and lemon juice, it becomes a delicious, sticky paste. We import Valliser's quince paste directly from Spain - it has beautiful, floral notes of both pear and apple.

In Spain this condiment is paired with a number of cheeses, but most famously with Manchego. In Italy, it is paired with fresh robiola or sharper pecorinos. We happen to love it paired with stronger goats or blue cheeses as a perfect foil to their bright and sharp flavors. Possibly one of the most versatile cheese condiments we know.

Quince paste is similar to La Senapata, but without the intensity of the mustard spice.
