I'm keeping up the blogtobering, even when I have little of major excitement to report. Well little if you don't like quinces, but if you do like them and are local or visiting, well do I have treat for you!
Today I started peeling and chopping up these:
And you know what?
I have no skinned knuckles or any cuts.
I blame sharp knives for this miracle. Sharp knives cut through quinces, which can be a bit woody, really easily.
Admittedly I've only done about ten or so quinces so far and have many to go but after boiling them over and making a smelly burning mess on the stupid flat top stove that we have, I had to stop for a while.
Tomorrow I get to play with quinces again! They do smell lovely when they cook up and they go a very pretty colour too :-)
And at last the weather is taking the dive we've been promised for a few days now. It greyed over completely today. We got that skylight in just in time because the forecast for the whole week is at least 50% chance of rain and maximum temps dropping down to 13C! I can see I should've run the heater today to clean out the smell of burning dust. Whoops! Ah well. Live and learn, or in my case live ;-)
