This ripening process is known as “bletting” the Medlars. You can eat them raw, they taste a bit like stewed apple and the dark brown flesh has the same texture. They can likewise be utilized to make jam (or cheese) and jelly.

Traditionally, medlars are also developed into a ‘curd’ design of fruit cheese, where the stretched pulp is cooked like lemon curd with eggs, butter and sugar. They can also be used for making a country wine that tastes rather like sherry. Just include the bletted fruit to sugar and water plus a wine yeast and delegate ferment. I added pears too, racked the brew and bottled it for 2 years. It was medium sweet with an extremely alcoholic taste and result. I didn’t evaluate the specific gravity but it resembled an extremely reputable sherry.
