membrillo
This fleshy fruit, which has a very distinctive golden yellow colour and an intensely aromatic honey-like pulp, is also a product of Nogalfruits. Our quince is a too hard and rough fruit, so there is usually eaten raw.
It is used to make “sweet quince jelly” or jam, but it can also be eaten roasted.
Its intense flavor makes it ideal to combine with apple pie or jam supplement, which enhances its flavor.
It is also possible to produce wine squeezed juice of quinces.
In ancient times it was thought that the quince was a variety of apple, and in classical Greece was considered a symbol of love and fertility.
Even it was customary for the newlyweds to eat one before entering the bridal suite.
