Condiments for Cheese

I'm looking for more ideas for cheese condiments. My present routine includes: honey, orange marmalade, pepper jam, tomato jam and mostarda di cremona.

        yes, quince paste or even apricot jam/preserves go very well with Manchego.

      2. Olive tapenade or roasted red pepper puree for something savory rather than sweet.

        1. Try saba, a cooked grape must syrup from Italy. Or a sweetened balsamic reduction. Also try making your own mostardas with dried (raisins, currants, cherries, apricots, figs) or fresh (pears this time of year) fruit.
