We have a rather scruffy allotment in the woods where we grow oddly shaped vegetables and snacks for squirrels. Our best crop this year as been from our tiny quince tree. Quinces are one of my favourite fruits, I love the combination of fluffy surface and waxy yellow skin. So far we have made some rather solid and crunchy membrillo, some very runny jelly and two tarts, now running out of ideas!
The best part of the day on the allottment is tea and cake and these cheerful '60s thermos flasks I found at the flea market just fit the bill.
