Medlar time of year again. Unlike some years when I've picked the fruit in a snowstorm the very mild weather this year has kept the fruit maturing on the tree only to be brought down with a bump in recent gusty winds.
Luckily they're pretty hard and landed softly on a bed of leaves from the beech and mulberry tree losing their lovely coloured foliage at the same time.
Rather than give you a repeat recipe - we'll probably make these into jelly again - here are the links to previous years and how we used the crop then.
2006: Medlar jelly
2007: Medlar and Quince jam
2008: Medlar butter or cheese
