Made from quince, a medieval fruit similar to the apple, membrillo is a unique fruit preserve. Orieta membrillo is made in Argentina with fresh quince fruit simmered with sugar and water. Traditionally served in Europe and Argentina, membrillo is deep red in color with a rich, unsurpassed flavor that pairs perfectly with your favorite cheese.
Spread membrilllo on toast or crackers instead of your regular fruit jam or thinly slice it and serve it alongside Manchego cheese. Membrillo's flavor is reminiscent of cranberries and can be substituted for other jams or preserves in a number of baked goods including pastries, turnovers or cookies.
