Quince Cutting Preserves-Girl Meets Dirt

The inspiration for Girl Meets Dirt cutting preserves line, this little gem has been described as ‘crack’ for cheese.  Made by hand over several days, this single-varietal ‘membrillo’ style preserve exemplifies the old tradition of steeping quince.  A labor of love --after a long, slow, cook, these hard, yellow, astringent & ancient fruits transform into a sweet with the likeness of honey but the complexity of tropical fruits. 

This Quince Cutting Preserve is like a classic membrillo, but a tad softer for easy spreading, it’s excellent with Manchego, Beecher’s Flagship, Cheddar, & Parmigiano Reggiano.  Don’t forget the Serrano ham…salud!
