On the weekend we were pretty excited to discover quinces are in season! I was excited mostly because since I met my boy I’d heard a lot about how amazing quinces are and considering I’ve never seen or tasted them other than in paste form this sounded pretty good to me! Also Trev is pretty clever in the kitchen so whenever he speaks about something he likes to cook I know it’ll be good regardless!
This is what the looked like before we baked them. They are kind of like really hard giant yellow apples. We combined cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean paste, lemon juice, water and brown sugar in a baking pan and basically just slow cooked them under foil for 2 and half hours.
And this is the amazing colour they went in the process!
And this was the finished product! I’ve gotta say they totally beat apple and rhubarb and would make an amazing crumble. And they turned out perfectly, unlike our Masterchef Gnocchi which was a giant mashed potatoey mess, worse than when most of the dud contestants cooked it. Despite this, it still tasted pretty good!
