Dear Family & Friends
In school we were told to memorize the poem of Edward Lear - 'The Owl & The Pussycat'. Part of the poem says: ' They dined on mince, and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon; and hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon'. I rattled on without even a clue what exactly they ate - mince and slices of Quince??
|boxes and boxes of quince harvested from our two trees|
|cleaned and chopped up quince fruit to be cooked|
|my goal is to make quince paste or dulce de membrillo|
Some kept for fruit crumble, for breakfast cereal mix, or for pancake or fritters. I also made a special quince paste or the Spanish delicacy called dulce de membrillo. Next post I share with you how I make this.
For now, enjoy your day and have a great week:)
