Quinces are lovely fruits that have a distinctive taste. They go really well with apples.
I usually mix quinces with apples when I make jelly or compote.
I picked all my quinces a few days ago to store before the frost damage them.
They won't keep all winter but a few weeks.
They have to be picked ripe otherwise they won't ripen unlike most fruits. I have read you can eat them raw but i usually cook mine.
They seem to be doing well in Brittany.
Try them! They are delicious!
