I have made some quince jelly from the fruit that grows in our garden. Am giving it to work colleagues and want to label the jars in an amusing or cute way. Any suggestions?

'Slices of Quince' from the Owl and the Pussycat?

Wish I could try it!

I was going to suggest QuinceEssential. I've never read/seen The Owl and The Pussycat so wouldn't get that reference!

PS can you please come and work with me grin

Oh that's great too. Thank you!

I love quinces and cooking with them. Elizabeth David has some lovely recipes for them and the history of quince jam or jelly; the Portuguese call it marmelada , like marmelade of course and they make both, there is a recipe with a mix of oranges and quince called cotignac.

We're lucky because one of our neighbours in Fr. has 2 quince trees and I got 2 boxes from her. grin.
