When we came home one evening, we found a bag full of voluptuous, gorgeous quince. it took me a few emails and text messages, but I finally figured out that the Novak gals were my quince fairies. Thanks, girls!
Most quince goodness begins with poached quince...
Poached Quince Ingredients
- 4 C water
- 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
- juice from 1 organic lemon
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3-1/2 to 4 C quince, peeled and sliced
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium or large saucepan. Bring to a boil, dissolving the sugar. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 60 to 75 minutes until the quince is tender and has turned a delicate shade of salmon pink. Drain and reserve poaching liquid. Remove cinnamon stick.
