Quince

We've got masses of beautiful quince this year. They are so gorgeous on the tree looking like jewels hanging in the green foliage.



Inspired by The Quince Tree {well who else really} I decided to try making some quince cheese, even though I've tried it before and it was .... ummm ... interesting.

This sounded relatively easy though so how could I go wrong {with my cooking skills - easily}. First I boiled my quince.


Then I all I had to do was make it into a paste, which I thought I'd done OK until I started stirring it and realised it was a bit lumpy - ooops.


So now I have to leave it for a bit.




I'm hoping it will do justice to the quince and be edible?

  1. It looks just fine to me. I used a Portuguese recipe last year and it was delicious.
