  1. I never heard of the Quince fruit before and don’t believe I’ve seen it in the grocery store here in Buffalo, New York but the recipe sounds delicious. I will inquire about locating it since it does not look like there is a good substitute!

  2. Thanks for your quince recipes. Everyone who takes some quinces from my tree gets your recipes. 🙂

  3. looks really good, definately will try it soon 🙂

  4. Yummy recipes. But your recipes will compel me to cook again. I used to cook a lot always but had decided to give time to other things now 🙂
