This is an original pie with a not very commonly used fruit.
These days quinces are rarely cooked.. It's a shame because this tasty fruit allows original excellent and cheap recipes, at the cost of a little work.

In addition one can easily find along the roads quince trees whose fruits are not picked up and which can be kept for at least a few weeks.

I propose this time a recipe for quince pie.

    While the pie is cooking make a quince jelly : in a saucepan, mix the strained quince water and the sugar. Boil on moderate heat and test the setting of the jelly by putting a few drops on a cold plate.

When cooked it tastes a little bit like acid apples.
