There are a number of quidony and pastes recipes
also in A Booke of Sweetmeats from Martha Washington's
Booke of Cookery.
S198, S199 call for quinces. S200 calls for pippins,
S201 calls for apricocks or pear plums, S202 plums,
S203 pippins either green or old, S204 gooseberries,
S205 English currans, S206 repas [raspberries], S207
raspas and red roses.
Then there are all the pastes and jellies.
I think there ought to be enough recipes in that manuscript to take
care of your fruit harvest, Anne Marie.
