Oh! Lucky you. My Chaenomeles are not mature enough yet to produce fruits. I love quince jelly.

HB I have never made it before, so you think it is worth making then?

Well, I love the taste so I can't wait for mine to set enough fruit. It's difficult, if not nearly impossible to buy quince jelly around here.

I made some last year. It's quite lemony & sharp in taste & smells lovely when it's cooking.

I should imagine it does smell lovely as you make it. They have a very strong scent apparently and it's advised that you keep them away from other fruits as the scent permeates.

Feverfew it took much longer to make than the recipes stated, but it is amazing how it changes colour at the end......I did not put any lemon in mine.....
HB I have decided to look after our quince shrub better now that it has produced fruit....
Thanks MB will let you know..

Dd, I didn't put any lemon in mine either. It just tastes a bit as tho' I had. Mine was made from the fruit of the ornamental Quince, not C. Longifolia, which is the one usually used for jelly. Still ok tho'.
