The quince tree originates in the Middle East and symbolizes luck, fertility and love.

In antiquity it was one of the most sought after medicinal plants. The fruit looks like a mix between an apple and a lemon. It must be cooked with sugar to tame the flavour and create a spreadable paste.

Try it on toast or crackers, or do as the Spaniards do and spread some on Manchego cheese
