quince & their scent
since i have a quince tree in my yard, i have bowls and baskets of quinces everywhere in my house, waiting to be turned into dulce de membrillo, roast quince with whipped cream, quince jam or quince liqoir, meanwhile spreading their scent through the house, a delicate, honey-sweet scent with a citrus note, a bit of pineapple and a touch of exotic spiciness. image: dietlind wolf via taverne agency. posted by leonoor
poached and roasted quince make a delicious desert
bring 500 ml water with 4 tbsp sugar to a boil to make a syrup. add 2 star anise and 4 not to big halved quinces and let it simmer until the quinces are tender. it will take al least 25 minutes, but it can be longer depending on the quinces, check with the point of a knife from time to time.
preheat the oven to 180 Âșc.

place the quinces in a shallow ovenproof dish, pour the syrup over the quinces and sprinkle with sugar. roast the quinces for 20-30 minutes till very soft. drizzle the quinces with the cooking juices and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
