Meddling with medlars
A lovely neighbour of ours gave David a bag full of these unusual looking fruit (and some quinces - yum). Neither of us knew what they were, but a quick look in 'The Complete Guide to Fruit Growing in Australia' showed them to be medlars. Now, what to do with them? Sally Wise's book 'A Year in a Bottle' includes two recipes, one for medlar jelly and another for medlar liqueur, which both sound very tasty. Now, which to make? Do you have a favourite use for them?
