Last week we taught you how to make a traditional Portuguese quince marmalade. Today we teach you how to use that marmalade in a delicious Romeo and Juliet Dessert.
Unlike William Shakespeare's play, in Portugal the love story Romeo and Juliet has a happy ending. The main actors? Cheese and marmalade, which can be either a starter or dessert. A duet that never fails and the end result, a mixture of sweet and bitter, is always surprising, even more so if the products are of good quality.
Marmalade is the result of quince (apple-like fruit) cooked with sugar and pureed. After being divided into bowls, these are covered with parchment paper and placed in the sun to dry. It is a specialty of Portuguese regional confectionery, with vibrant reddish-orange color and an intense flavor. When mixed with requeijão, fresh cheese, or Serra da Estrela cheese the result is surprising.
Cheese, like flamengo, fresh cheese, or any cheese you like
