A conversation about the ultimate slow food, quince, with Barbara Ghazarian, author of Simply Quince and Simply Armenian. If you have room, you should definitely make room for a quince tree.

  1. ooh, what perfect timing! One of the orchardists at my local farmer’s market is expecting his quince crop to be market-ready in the next few weeks — an excellent chance to practice before my own tree gets big enough to produce.

  2. LOVE quince! <3 <3 <3 it! Sadly, not enough sun for a tree, but it's on the list and I'm glad to be able to find the fruit at our local markets. I mostly make membrillo, altho' I occasionally put it in with apples in pies.
