Experimental Quince Pectin

Evidence of what I've been up to. Havesting and putting up what I can from my small urban plot.

I also made some blackberry jam with about half the quince pectin that was recommended to make a good jelly. The flavor was rather strongly sour, and the consistency verged on that of a fruit roll up. LOL! I still used it and it is certainly edible, but mostly it was a learning experience. It's ok, I still love my quince.

Quince is high in Vitamin B 17 and a very good fighter of cancer. Never tried it but it's on my list.

If you are daring, I say go for it! Eat it like an apple. It will make your eyes bright & shiny!

As long as it isn't frozen rhubarb, I guess.
