So, what is medlar?

Medlar, also known as Mespilus germanica, is a fruit with a unique taste that is often compared to a combination of dates and apples. It has a round shape, similar to a small apple, with a brownish-green skin that is tough and fuzzy. Inside, the medlar has a soft, brown pulp with a gritty texture and a sweet, spicy flavor. Medlars are usually eaten when fully ripe, which occurs after the first frost of the season. They are also commonly used in making jams, jellies, and baked goods. This ancient fruit is not very well known today, but it is a flavorful ingredient that can add a unique touch to many dishes.
