I am always one for no-waste, so here is another quince tip, this time from Greece.

Don't throw out the pips and cores from quinces - dehydrate/ dry them and keep in a jar.

Seep a few in boiling water for a delicious tisane that is said to be perfect for colds and sore throats.

Perfect for Winter.

What to do with the quinces?

I have much loved recipes for quinces - quince paste, quince molasses, q syrup, q leather, q jam, quince aachar (indian q pickles), baked q, savoury dishes with q, dips with tahini, q vinegar, q honey, q relish, poached q, ....

I am torn between making 1 or 2 of these, and trying something new.

My hint for making quince paste? Add just a little rosewater. Oh my!

Flowering #quince is always such a shy retiring introverted kind of shrub, don't you think?

A breathtaking early spring explosion of hundreds of coral-pink flowering quince blossoms, emerging from dozens of long and relatively narrow quince stems, with a few fairly boring green leaves budding out in the upper portion of the image, and a couple of unrelated largish tree trunks visible in the background. The quince blossoms are so amazingly numerous and distracting that you can't tell what kind of trees they are (actually they are large junipers). Southwest Washington State (USA). April 13th, 2023.

My happily overgrown backyard is nicely decorated with many quince blossoms. Happy spring!

Today the whole pink quince bush is buzzing with honeybees. They are to fast to get good macro photographs right now. Later in the day when they get their fill they will slow down. #honeybees #quince #pollinator #beekeeping #MastoArt #ArtCollector #BuyIntoArt #ArtMatters #mastoart #FediGiftShop

My thing is growing from seed. Unfortunately, it can take 8-10 years for any amount of fruit. But I still did it. One of my quince from seed bushes, has a few fruit already.

#Quince shown, are just regular ornamental quince. I think one is King Crimson name? Anyway, they were in 6 inch pots, and produce a bucket of fruit each year per shrub.

@NovaScotiaOffGrid @Catherine_alwaysaredhead

Once you see these in the spring, probably about May-June, you can't unsee them. Ask if you can pick them

Quince fruit (like hard pears in thorny bush)
Quince flowers are bright red
A tiny 6 inch pot became a 4 foot high shrub (pruned regularly) full of flowers May-July and fruit in the fall

@macanders Did you know that you can eat the quince fruits?
Yes they are no bigger than golf balls and as hard as nails, but they are like supercharged apples on steroids! Slice thinly (you will need a SHARP knife and a steady hand) and slide these slices under the skin of a chicken before roasting. They go well with roast pork too. Or microwave the slices for a while and add to an apple pie.

I remember reading that a new baby #quince tree shouldn't be allowed to bear fruit, but I don't remember whether I should do that after the 1st year. Now I can't find anything about it. Any #gardening or #horticulture people know the answer? It still looks like a 1
meter stick w/ 2 or 3 stubby branches.

Perfect summer's evening: clear, still, the sky fading into sunset and deepening twilight. Very pleasant to quietly pot up and repot all the plants that needed it. #quince grown from seeds are now approaching the size for planting out and starting to espalier. Will they give good quinces? We'll see... #experimentalRosaceae

Miss Avaline began,

"What you see before you are some of the most #Unusual fruits on earth.
Let me introduce you.

Few know the #Medlar. It's squishy & tastes like apple butter.
#Quince has an apple fragrance, too.

This #Aronia or #Chokeberry reminds me of raspberries - the juice stains.

And this crazy-looking guy is #Durian. I'll slice it open & see if you notice a SHIFT in the #Aroma - from sweet to stringent & back again. It's a very pungent scent-shifter."

Closeup of Medlar fruit. Medlar, has been around since Roman times, is usually available in winter & eaten when bletted.  

The flesh is dense, cream-colored, and hard when young, encasing inedible seeds.
Closeup of two Quince. One whole and one sliced in half. 
Quince fruit looks like a yellow apple. 
Quince is not eaten raw but is used for marmalade, jam, paste (known as quince cheese), or alcoholic beverages.
Closeup of chokeberries on the plant - they look like little cranberries. They are  1/3 – 1/2 inch in diameter, glossy- they turn black when ripe.
Closeup of a single Durian fruit that has been cut in half. The fruit is covered with a thick shell with spikes and is the shape and size of a football.

The visible white flesh can smell like cheese.

It is VERY nutritious.

Hello all!

I have this bowl of quinces that are just starting to get really fragrant. In the past, I've always poached them in wine. Does anyone have other brilliant ideas for this once-yearly treat?

Our #Quince is very small. It's full of beautiful Crimson flowers all summer, and fruit for jellies in the Fall. Thought I had it made. #Fruit

Look at the size of these? There's a cantaloupe next to them for comparison. $3.99 each!!! If I thought I could grow the giant variety from seed, I'd have purchased one... This big, you could probably poach them like pears? #uses

Anyone buy big Quince?
What do you do with it?

A display of large yellow fruits, stacked, with a cantaloupe beside for comparison. They are fist sized , like an apple

#membrillo, also known as quince #paste or quince #cheese , is how most people use #quince because they’re high in pectin and require a long cook to develop its rosy flavor (and color).

One of my family's long-standing traditions is to spend the fall cooking all kinds of quince recipes. Quince is a fragrant yellow fruit in the apple and pear family that turns a rosy blush shade when cooked. I grew up participating in annual quince harvests, and now for years I've grown my own quince.

Among my favorite things to make during our annual quince fest is Membrillo, a sweet paste of Spanish origin that pairs well with cheese and is lovely in baked goods. For this Throwback Thursday I'm posting my photo of Membrillo with Manchego cheese and Marcona almonds, and a link to the recipe I originally published in 2015, and then again in 2017.

This horizontal rectangle photo shows a row of elongated triangle-shaped appetizers made of Manchego cheese topped with my homemade membrillo (quince paste) and garnished with Marcona almonds. The membrillo is translucent orange and the cheese and almonds are pale yellow. 

The appetizers are arranged in a row on a blue abstract pottery plate that is in a vertical position through the center of the photo. 

On either side of the plate there is a marbled pink section. It is not obvious in the photo, but that pink is a small 50's Formica dinette table that has seen a lot of a happy family meals.

I have just eaten a fresh #quince (neighbours tree, windfall, ripe) and am surprised at how agreeable it was, not so dry or sharp, subtle wild apple flavour with gentle lemony tart, gently crunchy leaving a gentle tangy sharpness in the mouth. 8/10.
