Membrillo: From the Fruit Quince

Day 237 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

One of the gifts my daughter gave me for my birthday is a container of Homemade Membrillo from Spain. She remembers that I am fond of this treat. The paste is made from the fruit quince. The product is not easily found in our area. Even as a boy I remember keeping a block of membrillo in our refrigerator, and only eating a slide at one time, to make it last. (Any grammar corrections to my practice script in Italian below are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Mi piace la pasta di membrillo e la mangio come una caramella.
    I like 
    membrillo paste, and eat it like candy.
  • Per il mio compleanno, mia figlia mi ha dato un contenitore di membrillo.
    For my birthday, my daughter gave me a container of 
    membrillo.
  • La pasta gelatina è fatta con la mela cotogna.
    The jellied paste is made with the fruit quince.
  • Il regalo di membrillo è stato fatto in Spagna.
    The gift of
    membrillo was made in Spain.
Alla prossima!
