Expert Tips

Quince is a fruit that tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear. It usually comes in cans or plastic tubs. Often you can find it near the cheese section or in the deli department of your grocery store.

Next time, for a change of flavor, use apple slices instead of the pear slices.
