I'm desperate to cook some quince paste. Does anyone know where I can buy some in Tucson, AZ?
You might try Tropical Market. They have some fresh produce. Tropical Market is located on Grant Road around Tork's but pushed back into that strip mall.
And. . . I just bought a tree. It won't help this year, but in a few years I won't be paying 1$ for frangrance-free anemic little things.
I found some at food city for $1 each, less by the case. Pretty expensive. Maybe I should try and grow some. And you, in ABQ, they are rocklike, until you cook them, and then they are . . . heaven.
You can find quince in Tucson at Basha's markets.
The Food City stores up in Phx usually carry quinces, so you might try the Tucson locations of this chain or some other Hispanic-oriented supermarket.
As I recall, last year, they were going for around $1.30-$1.50 apiece (yes, apiece) in Phx.
Can't help you, but sorry you weren't here in ABQ a month or so ago, when about a half dozen of my friends were trying to pawn the little rocklike things off on me. :-/
