That's a new one on me. I didn't know Basque cooking used quinces. I've only eaten in the local Basque restaurants a few times (not much on eating out). Maybe I'll have to look up a Basque cookbook.
The quinces are just a side effect of my gardening. I like growing different/exotic things, and a quince tree was one. Didn't get our normal late frost this spring, so all the fruit trees had bumper crops - I was giving away pounds of cherries & peaches, and had so many apples & pears that I was taking wheelbarrow loads of less-than-perfect ones to the compost pile - and that's after giving bags full of good ones to all the friends & neighbors with horses.
And I've picked maybe 10 lbs of pine nuts too.
