First of all, what’s a quince? (We thought you might ask.) Quince is a fruit that looks a lot like a pear, and tastes like what would happen if an apple and a raisin had a baby. A delicious, delicious baby. Quince paste is a firm, sliceable paste with a jelly-esque consistency that’s tangy, sweet, and full of flavor and the perfect accompaniment to cheese. Casa Market, makers known for bringing fresh Mexican flavors like guava, vanilla, and...yep, quince to tables everywhere, adds depth and texture to their quince paste with the welcome addition of earthy pecans.
Tip of the Tongue:Quince Paste was made for cheese boards. Set it alongside a brie or blue, and the creamy saltiness of those cheeses will be a treat contrasted with the firm, fruity sweetness of quince. Set some crusty bread or a crisp cracker nearby to compliment both, and you will not be able to curd your enthusiasm.
