The winter storm delayed the quince harvest but one week later it was blue sky and gorgeous ripe quince ready for plucking in Earl and Tremaine's Wilsonville Orchard.
This prompted Return of the Chop. Friends of Stone Barn convened on an October Sunday to slice and dice 200 pounds of quince, and grind up a 900 pound bin of Bartletts, all in short order. Can you guess which two cutters ran the Portland Marathon earlier in the day?
We all had dinner, cocktails, and wine to celebrate the harvest and our great volunteers.
