Membrillo (Quince Paste) is a sweet, thick, sliceable firm paste made from quince that originated in Spain and is especially popular during the Christmas holidays.
Quince paste is usually sold in squares and served by cutting it into thin slices to accompany cheese, served on crackers, spread on toast or sandwiches, served with breakfast, eaten plain as a sweet confection (and commonly rolled in sugar), served with meats, and is also used to stuff pastries and spread in cakes.
