Peel and cube it and cook it down to jam. 3 parts sugar to 4 parts quince.

Here's a fun one especially for Thanksgiving...Peel, core, cube, along with equal pieces of sweet potatoes , potatoes, parsnips, yams and other root vegetables ( can include celery root also). Drizzle all with olive oil and bake in 350 degree oven until all are soft and quince has turned pinkish and becomes like a baked apple. Another alternative is to add cooked down ( smaller cubes than above) quince to create a twist on standardized stuffing mix . It becomes kind of like stuffing made with apples.
