Typically I like to eat membrillo or quince with a nice piece of manchego cheese and gourmet crackers, or tucked away in a grilled cheese sandwich. These days, I’m thinking less of gourmet meals for myself and more about making nice ingredients show up in kid-friendly meals. My son is exploring flavors and I am going to strike while the iron is hot. He is in the phase of trying new foods, but with baby steps. For instance, he would not eat watermelon or orange but will eat strawberries, blueberries, bananas and green apple. I wanted to introduce him to quince but knew for sure he would not eat it paired with fancy cheese or on its own. I thought quince would taste great when teamed up with peanut butter, and I was 100% right! We both enjoyed the delicious combination and since then, he has been brave enough to try quince all on its own. He told me that when he goes back to school, he wants to eat quince and peanut butter sandwiches everyday.
