Owned by Nan Stefanik, Vermont Quince Company specializes in unique, tasty condiments using quince as her primary ingredient! Although quince appears to be an exotic fruit, it is actually an ancient cousin of the apple and pear. Grown in Colonial America for it's high pectin content, quince is an ideal fruit for use in preserves and though it grows well in this region, it remains a relatively obscure fruit among local orchards. Nevertheless, Nan is able to source her fruit from Vermont and New Hampshire, encouraging commercial growers to join the "quince revival"!
I LOVE this mustard and have tried to keep it always on hand for several years now. Not as hot as some mustards, but with a delicious hit of fruity sweetness. My favorite way to eat it is on toast, sometimes plain, sometimes topped with a fried egg.
