"Quail and quince. An alliterative pair, camouflaged in warm Autumn colors. The quince can't make up its mind whether it wants to be eaten or not. Austere and astringent, the fruit when raw is quite inedible, though it exudes an irresistible fragrance. Cooked up in quantities of sugar, however, it forms a pleasing preserve, but much of its perfume is lost in the process. Capturing the wily quince is not difficult; all that is called for is time and patience. Plant a quince near a wall where it will get plenty of sun and wait. In time, and with the admixture of culinary art, you will have something tasty to put on your morning toast. " Item #16-3376
