Definition: Quince

An ancient fruit most popular in Asian and Mediterranean countries. Grown from the quince tree, this fruit is yellow skinned with an apple-pear like appearance. Due to a dry and astringent flavor, it's best cooked in jams, jellies, and preserves. Look for large, firm and bright yellow pieces when at the market. Peel before consuming.

We eat these like you would eat an apple, and most people put a bit of salt on top. They're REALLY good like that. I have a quince tree at my house. :)
