The lovely quince is a member of the Rose Family native to South-West Asia, Armenia, Turkey, Georgia, northern Iran and Afghanistan. It thrives in a variety of climates and can be grown successfully at latitudes as far north as Scotland.
I then decided to make a huge pot of quince sauce, which is like a tart, thick applesauce and can be used anywhere you would use applesauce in a recipe - like a pecan coffee cake !
In my newfound passion for brewing kombucha,
I was pleased to find quince made a wonderful tasting batch!
Even if you don't care for quince fruit, the flowers are so beautiful,
and would be a lovely addition to your garden!
