Chances are, you've never eaten a medlar. Hundreds of years ago, though, medlars were a favorite fruit across Europe. The small, apple-like. The French call the medlar tree, cul de chien (translation: dog’s arse). Add to this the fact that you can’t pick a medlar and eat it ripe from the tree, as you would an apple. Now Jane is hoping to revive their fortunes with her medlar jelly and cheese that she makes from her own.
