Quince & Apple Apples and Cranberry • $ 10
Nine years after opening Quince & Apple in Madison , Wisconsin , Clare and Matt Stoner Fehsenfeld produce preserves the same way they did as the day they started — one person working a 5-gallon batch from start to finish . They found that increasing batch size to keep up with growth ultimately changed their product , and that just wasn ’ t ok . So , it ’ s still small batch at Quince & Apple , just a lot more of them . Tart and sweet ingredients like Wisconsin cranberries and apples , orange zest , honey from Gentle Breeze Honey , an apiary whose bee ’ s feast on flora from local dairy farms , are tempered with salt and savory bay leaves . This preserve is just as comfortable in a dessert or cocktails as it is perched on a pork chops .
