This week I still could find very good Quince. This compote recipe came from my Grandmother. When ever my father eats it,he start talking about my Grandparents with so my love. ( My father is 93 years old,but he is another story which I think I'll tell you one of those days.) As you know I grew up with he stories about them. My father fell in love with my mother when he was 15 years old. He was an orphan at the age of 8, so it become so natural that my Grandparents like adopted him. He absorbed a lot from them, like. When ever the family sit for dinner , my Grandfather would never allowed to start eating as long as my Grandmother is not sitting at the table. This custom continue at my parents home, and still at our home too.
