It’s Quince Season!! I got my hands on three green quinces at the market today! I’m going to have to ripen them somehow…
To ripen quince, place in a dry, cool location out of direct sunlight for a few days. Turn fruit several times during that period. For quince that are light green in color (not yellow) and need a longer ripening period (staggered for later use in the kitchen), enclose in plastic bags or containers and store in a cool place for a period of 1 to 2 months. Storage is the same as for apples. Remember to keep quince separate from any other stored fruit, since the strong aroma of quince will taint other fruit flavor. Watch for superficial scald and flesh browning on some varieties.
I guess I’m going to have to wait a month for them to ripen 😦 boo
