Good News; Bad News!
My local grocery store FINALLY started carrying quince, much to my delight! I saw a basketful of rather small, but healthy-looking quince, with no price. I found the produce manager - the one who thought persimmons were quince- and asked him "how much?". Of course, he didn't know, and had to check.
Upon his return, he grinned and said, "Too rich for my blood!" "The price?" I asked. $3.29 each!
And I thought $2.99 each at The Fresh Market was over-priced!
What does quince cost in your area?
