Hello, everybody! Sorry for the long break but I had a stressful week. I’ve been really busy with school these days, lots of deadlines and hard projects to finish and no time for cooking. Fortunately, mom saved me again! She cooked this wonderful quince dessert this morning and made my day a lot better.

I can’t say I’m a huge fan of quinces. I don’t like them raw, but cooked they’re absolutely amazing! This is a very easy quince dessert, and the abundance of flavors will amaze you! It is perfect for this season.

Do you know other ways to cook quinces? I’d love to try different desserts using this lovely fruit. Looking forward to your comments!

  1. I can’t wait for quince season to make this recipe again! I made it last autumn and I instantly fell in love with it.

    I really love your blog!

  2. Quinces cooked with cinnamon sticks, star anise, vanilla, lemon rind and a lot of sugar, cover with water. Cook for about 4 hours slowly until the turn a beautiful deep red, can also be roasted whole with same as above, cover with foil and bake on low overnight.

  3. It looks really delicious, but I’m not sure about the oil – why do we need it for this recipe? Or, if it’s really needed, isn’t one tablespoon enough?

    1. Thanks Anca! Of course you can use less oil, coconut oil is perfect for this. If you don’t add oil the quinces will be too dry. I’ll redo this recipe and use only one tbsp of oil and see how it turns out 🙂

  4. I think it's easier baked because you don't have to be careful not to burn the sauce. It's a good idea!
