Japonica / Japanese Quince

Can these be used exactly as the normal quince?
Chez

I didn't think they could - we have one in the garden and I've been leaving it. I shall be extremely annoyed if someone pops up and says I could have been making quince jelly all these years ...

Are they the ones thst are on a spiky bush and avoutvthe size of plums? If they are my neighbour always used them for making wine...

Yes, I always used them for jelly and wine, though they didn't seem to produce much compared to the other (gone wild) quinces I harvest/forage, and the fruits were quite small.

I've never had a normal quince but a Japanese quince can be used in all sorts of jams, preserves, and I would try it as a sauce/jelly/compote/jus thing as well Smile

I hope to be harvesting in two weeks Cool

they are flipping hard - so making jelly is the easiest so you dont have to fight with peel and all that..

Whilst you can use them, I dont bother anymore as I dont think they are particularly tasty

I followed that link for the jelly recipe, but left out the tarragon.

The jelly is a beautiful colour, nice taste and sets well. I think the next batch will be 50:50 with apples, the taste should still be there, and the colour.

Pulp now being sieved for fruit cheese making Very Happy
