A new taste creation from our fermentation kitchen in Ohau. A ferment that brings together the incredibly aromatic Quince with the exotic flavour and health properties of cinnamon, white pepper & a dash of cardamom.

Tasting Notes

This ferment has a fresh & firm texture that is packed with gut-healthy fibre. The aromatic qualities & tartness of the quince really shine through. The cinnamon & pepper add a delicate punch, that does not overwhelm and complements the Quince in a most delectable way. It is a well-balanced ferment with a rich array of delicate flavours and texture. This means it plays well with either sweet or savoury dishes.

The texture is a firm sticky paste so is easily spreadable or used on food. Either ladle with a teaspoon or spread with a knife.

Recipe ideas

  • Try it on vanilla ice cream, even better with some hokey-pokey.
  • Spread it on crackers with cheese.
  • Pairs well with fish, lamb, venison or beef.
  • Use it on a hamburger.
  • Use as a dipping sauce for dumplings.

The quality of the fruit

This beautifully textured, and aromatic ferment celebrates Quince, picked and preserved at the peak of its season, from our little orchard in Ohau. Our orchard uses zero chemicals, so you can be assured it is 100% natural.

Most of this season’s harvest will be used for this product. We only have two trees that produce about 50kg of fruit between them. This will make about 250 jars, so a very limited supply.

Why Quince?

For several years we have been using the Quince to make Membrillo. and a delicious Quince wine. This year we thought it would work well as a spicy ferment. It was well worth the effort to get our recipe right. We are sure you will be as delighted as we are.

This product is Vegan and contains no Gluten or dairy.

All of our processes, from growing to making food, require low energy and water consumption. Zero chemicals or sprays are used. We use permaculture principles to care for the land that we are entrusted to maintain for future generations.
  • Ethical: No animals are harmed in the making of our food. We ensure that our ingredients are ethically sourced. Whenever possible we buy and support other local growers.
  • Natural: Although we are not certified organic, we use organic principles just the same. We use natural processes to grow our mushrooms and natural processes to make our food. This is why we favour fermentation as our main production method.
  • Nutritious: We are firm believers in functional food, with health and nutrition coming from the food we eat rather than from supplements or medicines. You can be assured that everything we make and sell is healthy. Any process we use to make food not only makes it taste even better but also increases the health or nutritional benefits.
