No Cooking Required - The Perfect Spanish Dessert for Summer!
Membrillo is a typical dessert eaten in Spain, although it is also served with toast at the breakfast table. Membrillo or Dulce de Membrillo is a sweet, very dense jelly or paste made from the fruit of the quince tree. Ending a summer dinner with a bit of membrillo and soft cheese spread over a slice of baguette is tasty and preparing it won't heat up the kitchen.
Where can you buy membrillo? It is sold in supermarkets and grocery stores all over Spain. In the USA, it is available in ethnic grocery stores, gourmet food stores and via the internet. It is usually sold in a can or a sealed plastic container. Once open, store in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container.
