So, what is membrillo?

Membrillo is a sweet and fragrant fruit that is a staple in Spanish and Latin American cuisine. Also known as quince, it has a distinctive yellow color and a hard, slightly fuzzy texture. Membrillo is often used to make a thick, spreadable paste that pairs perfectly with cheese or is used as a filling in pastries. The paste is made by cooking the fruit down with sugar until it becomes thick and sticky. Membrillo has a tart and floral flavor that is similar to apples or pears, making it a versatile ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes.
