Hi I'm new to the forum, this is the first time I have posted so first of all hello to everybody 🙂

I really enjoy reading the blogs, I found the site when my mother sent me a link, I was looking for a chutney recipe. I noticed in an old blog Fiona mentioned using the pulp left over from making Quince Jelly. I have a recipe for quince and apple jelly, I used a lb of quinces and a lb of cooking apples and am wondering if there is anything I can do with the pulp. Does anyone have  a recipe they would like to share with me and some advice if it is cheese or butter, I am new to the whole preserving thing but looking to learn and try new things 🙂

Thanks for your time.

Kate 🙂

Hello, I am also new to this forum.

Just to let you all know that it 8th December here in Spain.

It is a public holiday and we have just returned from the beach where it is a lovely calm and sunny day - people are sunbathing and the odd mad child is in the sea.

My lovely Spanish neighbour just gave us some membrillo which she and her husband made yesterday, from the fruit of a tree in their garden.

I have just enjoyed some with cheese for lunch, it is unusual but delicious.

The one she made does not look as dark a the one I have seen in recipes on the web - would that be because it is from fresh fruit?
