Late fall is the season for quince. This fruit is hard, but very fragrant, and is excellent for making marmalades, jam and jellies. It contains a lot of wholesome pectin. The quince’s flesh is hard and its pieces retain their shape when boiled. Thick and strong-flavored quince marmalade is one of the tastiest delicacies of the table.
