Product Description

Dulce de membrillo or Carne de membrillo in Spanish, marmelada in Portuguese is a sweet spread or a dessert (quince paste).

Traditionally and predominantly from Portugal, Italy (exported when the South of Italy was part of the Kingdom of Aragón) and Spain, dulce de membrillo is a firm, sticky, sweet reddish paste made of the Quince fruit. Dulce de membrillo is also very popular in America, in Brazil (as marmelada) and in Israel, as a typical Sephardi dish.

Dulce de membrillo is made of quince fruit, sugar and water, cooked over a slow low heat. It is sweet and mildly tart, and similar in consistency, flavor and use to guava paste.

Traditionally it is sold in squares or blocks, then cut into thin slices and spread over toasted bread or sandwiches, plain or with cheese, often served for breakfast or as a snack, with manchego cheese or mató cheese or with a local artisan sheese makers Lightwood Chaser. It is very often used to stuff pastries. Our product is slightly softer in texture but available in 45ml jars, prolonging it shelf life.
