Ingredients: All pastes are made with approximately equal parts fruit pulp and cane sugar, with citric acid or lemon juice, plus pectin.
The word ‘paste’ is adopted in Australia, whereas this product is known as a cheese in the UK, a meat in Spain and South America and a bread in Germany. And it may of course be known by another identity in any country where quinces are grown. So far I have recorded 22 countries that make this quince product.
The quince is the first fruit recorded in ancient hieroglyphics, and is known as the Prince of Fruit. It originated in Persia and Turkestan, and was dedicated to the Goddess of Love.
