But they are very fragrant, and delicious. They are great in sweet and savory dishes both. They also make great potpourri additions or put into a decorative fruit display add a wonderful aroma to the air. They smell of apples and pineapples, and apple blossoms. This is one I made up from a basic quince jam recipe. Very few ingredients. Could be made without Habaneros - but the combination is really great."
