WOW! I'm really glad I tried out your pie, as it was really delicious.
The missing sugar to the recipe has been added and now the recipe is really perfect. I hope you will get more reviews!
I know, many people never tried quinces, but if they will try your recipe they sure will love them!
Thanks a lot for your recipe.

I love trying new things to do with all the quince I have growing on the side of my house..this recipe is not my fave so far. I think it needs a healthy dose of SUGAR!! Thank God we had vanilla icecream because it was the tartest pie Ive ever eaten and that is after I used 4 different varieties of sweet pie apples and went against the recipe and added a wee bit of brown sugar.!! If your gonna make this adapt with some kind of sweetness or you'll be puckered up like me writing this review!!!

This is a very good recipe! I'm afraid I didn't add the chilli peppers; I can sort of imagine the flavour and sure adding them would add a certain something, but I'm afraid when it came to the crunch I wasn't quite brave enough! I loved the rum and vanilla flavour combination though, and the melted butter added an extra richness. If I manage to get some quinces again I hope I'll get up enough courage to make this as posted :-)
