The Fine Cheese Co.'s Quince English Fruits for Cheese

On a recent visit to an awesome new deli and gourmet shop in Griffith, Indiana, called Charcuterie, the owner, Skip, pointed out a few of their unique products. One he recommended was a fruit spread from the The Fine Cheese Co. in the UK. This spread is made with quince, which from what I learned via Google, is an ancient fruit that grown on trees in Turkey and southeast Asia that is similar to an apple or pear. It definitely makes for a delicious spread, perfect on top of a soft cheese on these little toasty bites that I also got there that come from France.

The spreads are also available online at fine where you'll also find other delicious varieties, including cherry, fig, gooseberry and damson.
