“I think to have a quince tree and not to make quince jam shows such strength of character.”

So remarks Vera in the short story ‘The quince tree’ by Saki, satirical writer of the early twentieth century.

I guess we’re going to be weak again, and succumb to making jam, jelly and cake with our quinces.
