I could have bought an apple tree…


…that way I’d have some delicious apples for my lunch box. But no, I had to buy a quince tree – just to be different. Now I’m stuck with these…

quince

Rock hard and as dense as a neutron star, they must be slow-cooked for hours before becoming palatable. Or they can be reduced to quince jelly – or Membrillo in Spain – and spread on Manchego cheese (best option).

Musing: If one of these had landed on Sir Isaac Newton’s head, we’d not have the law of gravity: Newt would be dead.

Musing 2: Without Newton’s law of gravity, would we all be floating around by now? If so, it would probably be legal too – though hard for the government to tax. Perhaps you’d need a Floating Around licence.
