Quinces are truly a unique fruit, resembling chubby pears but with a fuzzy texture of their own. Available between September and November, quinces are not meant to be eaten raw - they need to be cooked to unleash their full potential. One of the most delightful ways to enjoy quince is by preparing a spiced chutney, where the sweet and tangy flavors of the fruit are enhanced with aromatic spices. In this recipe, the key ingredients are quince, spices, and a touch of sweetness which come together to create a mouthwatering quince paste that is perfect for the holiday season. Originating in Spain, quince has become a beloved ingredient in many countries, especially during Christmas. Its versatility shines in the form of jellies, preserves, and the famous sliceable firm paste known as Membrillo.
