Quince Paste
Featured Recipe Title

Making quince paste might not be what you imagine doing if you have a day up your sleeve, but it's pretty awesome and delicious. Everyone wants quince paste on their cheeseboard. With time, heat and sugar, you can transform autumn's strange offering into a cheese board dream, and enjoy it with the satisfaction that comes from making something yourself you might otherwise buy. It's a long, slightly messy process, but really quite easy so if time is on your side maybe give quince paste a go. It might be the alternative passata-making tradition for you this long weekend.

Item 1
The fruit of the quince tree is thought by some to be the original apple of biblical fame, which makes Jenny and Steve, who grew these little beauties, either pretty old or just aptly named. Quinces often inspire a lot of Maggie Beer-esque swooning from fans, perhaps because of the mystery surrounding their transformation from hard rock-like orbs into fragrant, ruby-coloured jewels, studded with the subtle, heavenly flavours of autumn's embrace … whoops.

Red Capsicum
Item 2
Ever since I read 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' by Barbara Kingsolver, I can't eat a red capsicum without thinking of the little capsicum plant's risky, long and arduous parenting journey. How far they've come, from young plant to flower to fruit, and fruit finally turning from green to red. And how quickly they're eaten.

Jonagold Apples
Item 3
Jonagold, delicious child of Jonathon and Golden Delicious, are more pleasant to crunch than a quince, though they do sound a bit like a canine hybrid bounding up to you in the dog park. Off with you, Labradoodles and Cockapoos, I'm eating an apple that is older than your kind.

The odd shaped fruit we all love to love

If you quite fancy a dabble in alchemy, love potions, and alternative remedies then the humble quince might be your personal fruit mascot. Long used in home remedies for throat, lung and stomach ailments, in ancient Greece it was also regarded as the fruit of love, marriage and fertility and the gift of choice for newlyweds to nibble on during their honeymoon. A few quinces on the gift registry would seem a strange choice at first. Stashed in an ancient suitcase-with-wheels, surely they'd get that fluffy coating all over the clothes, and the entire romantic getaway could be spent stirring a pot of over-ripe quinces that might never set. But maybe old Aphrodite was onto something. Something deeper, something at the hard seedy core of it. Like a box of odd shaped and bitter fruit from the back corner of the orchard, so we too, with a little persistence, can be cooked up into something delicious to ladle onto breakfast.

True Organic Cheddar
True Organic Cheddar Cheese 200g
It must be the heady fragrance of those darn quinces, but even this cheddar – I'm starting to see it differently. What was once sweet organic milk, is now, after 6 months on the shelf with only some vegetarian rennet for company, is a helpful block of flavourful fromage. Miraculous!

Organic Mountain Wraps
Organic Mountain Wraps 200g
They're flat, which is space efficient but very unlike mountains. Yet they can effortlessly surround an avocado and cheese and rocket-lined valley like only a mountain range can. The mystery remains.
