It is known as the fruit of love in Greek mythology, is believed to be the actual forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden, and has origins older than that of its cousin the apple. But what exactly is a quince?
Rummaging around I found these picture of McCutcheon’s back from when most things were done by hand, ten varieties of preserves seemed like a lot, and when no one said no to kids riding their bikes like friends around the warehouse.
It feels good to see the crates being filled up again. There is something eerie about a store with no merchandise or products. But as Sue, Tony, and countless other McCutcheon’s employees began trucking in case after case of preserves the room began to look lived in again.
Do you know your apples? There are the green ones and the red ones and the sort of yellow ones…right? Well, actually there is a lot more to the common apple than meets the eye. Every season, region, and type affords a uniquely flavored fruit.
This past week McCutcheon’s Apple Products attended the IGC (Independent Garden Centers) Trade Show in Chicago. Now you may wonder what a food producer was doing alongside garden centers and garderners.
