More quince stuff - I have now stashed the whole crop and made pie  :D

As well as the jelly, I have quince brandy steeping, quince and lemon conserve, spicy pickled quince slices and this quince chutney.

Quince out now  :lol:  The pickled quince has left a lot of leftover spiced and sweetened vinegar, so picked up a bag of unwaxed lemons on the way to work to make a lemon pickle later.

New Shoot, and of course, anyone else here making preserves, you've made our five small jars of tomato chutney seem rather (very) insignificant by comparison!

Mrs Growster marvels at your work, then asks, if you can possibly use it all before next year...;0)

 :lol:  Maybe but I'm happy to have extra.  Last year the quince tree only had a few fruits and then dropped the lot early, so the harvest was a big fat zero.  I have just opened the last jar of quince chutney from 2016 and very fine it is too  :D

There are spicy preserves to have with curries, traditional ones for sandwiches and the like, which perks up my late night dinners no end when I get home from late shifts at job no.2.  I also have OH to feed, who I suspect polishes off way more than me, you and Mrs G combined.

I cook with them, adding chutney to the bottom of quiche cases, into tagines and other spicy stews, plus jellies into gravy and jams and conserves into puddings.  Then there are the seasonal gifts for a couple of months time ....  it all goes  :)
