Author Notes: Back home in Croatia, we had two quince trees and my mom us to make lots of jams and quince cheese my father us to make quince brandy ( it is legal there ). What I am trying to say, quince cheese and jam was stapled food in our house.Then I notice the recipe for The Figgy Quince Amaretto Nut Loaf by Hazel Paterson from It's Not F***ing Rocket Science. I was inspired.
We alleyways had plain since it is not quince season I did buy quince jam and melted in the pot and cook little longer, on the end I mix in chopped nuts and dry fruit and reshaped into two small loaves. It is perfect for a cheese platter. —anka
