Giardigiò Jams – Compote “La Diversa”
Quince and cardamom compote
Contrary to what one might think, quince is not just for desserts – it’s great also with savoury dishes.
Diversa is perfect when combined with Roquefort cheese or fresh cheese. Bruschette with Caprino cheese and quince jam is a great appetiser to serve friends.
A combination with white meat is also worth trying – quince gives a sweet touch to poultry and turkey. You may use it while cooking poultry, or you can serve little portions of it in combination with your main course.
Jars: 100 gr., 200 gr.
Ingredients: Quince and cardamom
Why combining cheese with jam or marmalade? It’s all about chemistry: cheese is almost completely sugar-free, so its complementary food are jams and marmalades. The result is a balanced mouthfeel. In order to pick the best combination, one must consider the type of milk that was used for the cheese – cow, goat or sheep – and the consistency – soft, semi-hard, cured or semi-cured.
When it comes to taste, a proper balance is the ultimate goal. Softer and sweeter cheese should be combined with sour marmalades and jams while strong and cured cheese should be combined with something sweet.
