Cath asked what a quince smells like. Such a difficult question!
Like flowers was my first thought, but I typed it into Google, as one does, and found so many nice things, poetic things, I had to share with you.
Some of the bloggers who wax lyrical about quinces are some with the most poetic blog names: In Eat The Roses the scent is described as 'pineapples and heaven' and there is Glass Petal Smoke. Or what about The Joy Kitchen?
I like Sue's blog The Quince Tree - full of unpretentious easy sounding and delicious looking recipes.
So, like pineapple, pears, coconut, roses, violets, apples, honey, deep, exotic, spicy, tropical or heaven?
I still think they smell of freesias.
And I think I'll be using them as suggested here.
What do you think they smell like?
