Some people make quince jelly with them but I think you need loads of them. It would be nice if it grew a few more...:o)

If you want to use it you can slice up one and add it to an apple pie - very good! There isn't a lot of flesh on them as the seed part takes up more than its fair share of room.

Thats true Stera, we have enough to make some jelly and some Membrillo all being well!

Membrillo? Not scouring pads I hope...

Oh! Yes Dd. I remember you talking about making Membrillo, was it last year?
Lol Stera.
I will use it as you suggested Stera, it would be a shame to waste it.
