A Japanese customer asked me to find him a Pseudocydonia sinensis
(Chinese quince). I did and asked him what he did with the quince.
When they are ripe he cuts them up and puts them in a bowl/container
with an equal volume of coarse sugar and lets them sit for a couple of
months. Then he strains out the fruit and to the syrup, adds an equal
volume of vodka. He says it is excellent for killing colds and he uses
it as a daily 'tonic'.
Another person from the Orient says he uses gin.
