Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives. -William A. Foster
Quince & Apple is a kindred business. Founded by husband and wife Matt and Clare Stoner Fehsenfeld in 2009, Quince & Apple has remained unwavering in its commitment to making products in small batches, even as its business grows. Each jam, preserve, and syrup is lovingly handmade in their downtown kitchen in Madison, WI, using all natural, non-GMO ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible. Every batch is taste tested to meet exacting standards, and meticulously jarred by hand.
They adjust recipes to suit the seasonal characteristics of each fruit, and create each product with food pairings in mind. Flavor profiles are subtle, well-balanced, and deliberately not too sweet, making them ideal for pairing with cheese, ice cream, and of course, nut butter.
This month’s featured jam, Figs and Black Tea, is made with dried figs reconstituted in black tea, giving it an extra depth of flavor. Try it with our favorite nut butter pairings – classic Peanut Butter or Tigerwalk Espresso nut butter – on fluffy buttermilk biscuits for delectable breakfast sandwiches.
