Quinces have been cultivated in Southern Europe for centuries, both for their fruit and as an ornamental; flowering quinces have delicate pink flowers which are quite attractive. The quince fruit looks sort of like an Asian Pear, and it is generally not edible in a raw form, being extremely hard and bitter. Quinces were exchanged by the Romans as love offerings, and used in a variety of Greek and Roman dishes historically. In the modern day, quince paste and quince jam are common in the Middle East, especially Lebanon, and Spain.
There are a number of ways to use this jam. It is commonly offered with breakfast, where it may be spread on breads, and it can also be used to accompany roast meats and other dishes, with its sweet, floral flavor complementing a range of foods. In Spain, quince paste and Manchego cheese is a very popular snack, with some people considering it the national dish of Spain, although a number of delicacies vie for this honor
