The quince (/ˈkwɪns/; Cydonia oblonga) is the sole member of the genus Cydonia in the Malinae subtribe (which also contains apples and pears, among other fruits) of the Rosaceae family. It is a deciduous tree that bears hard, aromatic bright golden-yellow pome fruit, similar in appearance to a pear. Ripe quince fruits are hard, tart, and astringent. They are seldom eaten raw, but are processed into marmalade, jam, paste (known as quince cheese) or alcoholic beverages. (Wikipedia).

Our favourite recipe is for Membrillo – it is so good with a nice ripe cheese and, made even better, when it’s paired with Quincy Jonesin, a Whitbier, brewed with our quince by our pals at Concession Road Brewing Company in Jarvis.
