If you have a steam juicer, you can make this delicious jam. You need a steam juicer because quinces are a very tough fruit, but they have a great flavour.

These scrumptious empanadas are arguably the most popular sweet treats in all of Argentina. Traditionally, this recipe is made just with quince paste, but adding either goat or manchego cheese to the filling makes them irresistible.

Summer is not complete without the perfect strawberry trifle. Although this trifle cheats a little in its preparation, layer upon layer of total deliciousness will keep family and friends coming back for more long after they are full. This trifle is at its best when using fresh, sun-warmed local strawberries from May through August. Add quince jelly to the trifle both as a layer above the sponge and whisked into the cream for an extra wow factor.
