Ivan Day had us make knots with boiled down apples in April because
he was unable to get quinces at that time.

See his pretty quince recipes at 

There are recipes titled for "quyncis or wardouns in paste" in Harl. 
279. Pears may
be interchanged with quinces in the perys in confyte recipe 86 in An 
Ordinance of Pottage.
