Does anyone Know where I can get a jar in or near Philly? I've never seen it at Di Bruno, which would be my first place to look. Thanks.

    I have gotten it at Claudio's on 9th Street. I'd think DiBruno's would have it too, but I am not there much.

      Thanks. I'll take a look next time I'm down there.

      You can make it yourself. About the only thing that may require some searching are the quinces.

        I was thinking about making it myself, but I want to have a jar of the good stuff in order to compare - it's been ages since I've had it so I might not be able to tell if mine is as good!

          If you like your version, then it's good!

            True.

        I got some at Di Bruno's about a month or so ago. They must make it themselves. I was hoping to find some in a jar imported from Italy but they only carry the one they make. It was just okay. I guess I was expecting it to be spicier. It was very mild with just slightest mustard/sweet taste. I used it to make a pork tenderloin sauce and the part I didn't use up is still sitting in my fridge - if it had been great I'd have used it up right away.

        Next time I'm in the area, I'll look in at Claudio's and see if they have the imported version.

          Claudio's carries it in a jar - I believe it is imported - I seem to recall trying to translate the ingredients (Italian for quince anyone?)

            That would be mela cotogna.
