Do you know the fruit quince?
the quince comes from the cognac and has the appearance of pear and apple, but when it is believed, he is not as popular as them. When cooked, it brilliantly replaces apples and pears in many recipes. the quince appears on some lists of “forgotten fruits”. It probably dates from Mesopotamia.
In the 19th century, it was common for British and North American families to have at least one cognac in their Classes. This fruit was appreciated for its ultrarich pectin content, which made it possible to make firm jellies and jams. However, in 1889, Charles Knox and his wife Rose Knox discovered how to turn gelatin into a powder. This became very popular after a recipe pamphlet was created for the product. Knox's powdered gelatin could be stored longer and more easily than pectin from quince and it is then that the fruit lost all its popularity and never really recovered from it.
Nowadays, the quince is produced in hot, dry climates such that Turkey, which is the world's largest producer of quince. Canada does not produce it then most from quinces available in our grocery stores come from the United States which produce less than 1% of international production.
