What does a Quinci taste like nad how do you use in a recipe?

I saw Emeril use some Quinces in a recipe several days ago. Since then, I've been wondering what, exactly, they taste like. I got the impression from that episode that Quince taste similar to apples, maybe a little stronger?

Anybody have an idea?

My aunt makes jam out of them every year. And they do have somewhat of an apple taste. I prefer apples.

I adore quinces. They are actually related to the rose, and taste like a cross between an apple and a rose, if you can imagine that.

I love them baked with honey, for approx three hours. I love mermbillo, the spanish quince paste, which takes 8 hours to cook, and is very therapeutic, if hard work.

I also like them boiled in a syrup, they go very well with a light sponge cake.

Australian chefs Stephanie Alexander and Maggie Beer have some great recipes, as does Claudia Roden.
