Quince jelly

Quince jelly. Quinces are pretty inedible straight off the tree – like a cross between a pear and an apple but made out of concrete. Cook them though and they turn into a beautiful princess (‘quince’ means princess in Portuguese!*). Recipe for jelly; quarter about ten quinces (the weight doesn’t matter, we’ll measure the juice that comes out to work out the other stuff). Use a good board & knife, they’re super hard and will need some muscle. Leave everything on – skin, pips, fuzzy down on the outside…
