Just a few pictures from this past Sunday outing to a friends' country house. The quinces were just ripe, so we gathered a crate. We are not very keen on eating fresh quinces, but they are quite delicious in the form of compote or jam.
The house is in the Lyulin mountain, so Gabi and I went for a walk in the fields around and gathered some rose hips and hawthorn berries too for fresh berry tea.
When picked carefully, quinces can last for quite a long time, so I'll have fresh quinces at hand for quince compote for at least two or three months. These beauties are destined to be the victims of today's dessert :)))
