quince and tomatoes

Rich autumnal harvest now. Mostly tomatoes (variety Crimson Blush which is indeed – praise be! – blight resistant) and kilos and kilos of quince. Last year the little tree produced just a few treasured fruit; this year, its fourth since planting, too many to count.


The tomatoes make wonderful soup; sometimes with basil, sometimes with chilli. And the quince have provided deep red fragrant delight poached with vanilla, plus a large Kilner jar of quince gin and a good amount of excellent membrillo (see here for the recipe).
