Hi Barbarasnowball,

Welcome to the Appropedia wiki. Please make yourself at home! If you need a general wiki-tutorial, see the main help page (or the more in-depth one on WikiEducator).

Check your preferences and be sure you verify your email address and turn on email notification if you'd like it -- you can find out when your talk page, or any page on your watchlist, is modified. You may want to upload a photo or information about yourself to your userpage (which is at https://www.appropedia.org/User:Barbarasnowball).

If you have a particular interest or project in mind, go ahead and start it! If you have questions or suggestions, the best place to leave them is at the Village pump - you should get a fast response. Or, feel free to leave me a note on my talk page if you have further questions, need help finding your way around, have a cool idea for a project, or just want to chat.

Glad to have you here!


I have made quince jelly, cooking all parts of the fruit cut up, including all the seeds, then strained everything out before boiling up.

I read on one web site that the seeds are poisonous and should not be consumed. Other web sites say the seeds are good for lung problems, pneuomonia, etc. My friend, who has been using quinces for years, has always put the seeds in and then strained them out, and has never had ill effects. So, although the seeds are cooked with the quinces, they are not actually eaten. Do you think this is safe?
