CREMA DE MEMBRILLO QUINCE
Quince paste is called Crema de Membrillo in Spanish. The word membrillo drives from Latin melimelum, which means honey apple and refers to quince or a preserve made of quince. This relative of the apple and pear is a native of the Caucasus and resembles a large, yellow, lumpy pear. Making quince preserves was one of the first uses of the pectin that occurs naturally in fruit. Coarse Spanish quince paste is most often eaten with cheese. It offers a soft, sweet contrast to the saltiness of traditional Spanish cheeses, such as Manchego and Cabrales.
