How to store
Store ripe quinces in a cool, dark place. Unripe pears can be placed on a fruit bowl for several weeks to ripen.
How to eat
It is better not to eat quinces raw, but to process them into, for example, jam or compote. Most of the flavour is in the skin of the fruit, so if you have a recipe that requires the quince to be peeled, see if you can bake or cook the peels and remove them afterwards.
