5/3/12- Adventures in fruit

Have you ever tried quince? 

A local grocery store was selling some, along with a recipe for roasted quince so I decided to try it. The recipe sounded like I was making a batch of mulled wine, and the house smelled like that as it was baking. 

The inside of a quince. Quite hard to cut through, and looked like an apple on the inside. The seeds were scooped out. 

Cut side down in a baking tray, cloves piercing the skin. 

A mixture of red wine, lemon, honey and cinnamon sticks were poured over.

It's then put in the oven for an hour and 15 min. What you are left with is quite a soft-wine-infused fruit that has the texture of a pear, and is nice with ice cream. Saying that I didn't love it, and it seemed like a long time and a lot of effort for a few spoons of a fruit.
