This sweet and sour quince is the perfect choice for making jams. With its intense fragrance and tangy sweetness, this is a special fruit. Dice it before cooking it to easily tenderize its flesh. The quince lets you know when it’s cooked by changing its color to a beautiful pinkish hue. Boost its flavor with vanilla and tame its taste with sugar.
