It is quince time in Turkey. You find them every where and each day it is getting cheaper. We prepare many things with quince. Above all we eat it like a fruit – which is my favourite. We also add it to olive oil side dishes, we prepare jams and we cook quince as a dessert. This is the recipe I will be posting today; the Quince Dessert.
Fruit desserts are the most antique desserts. We make them with apples, pears and similar. I guess it was created when the quinces were difficult to swallow as a fruit.
It is quite easy. In this recipe you will find several attractions; such as adding a spice bag in to the skillet. Adding quince seeds will help to protect color, adding cinnamon will provide flavor, adding pomogranate seeds will add color.
You can fill the seed beds with an additional quince or apple grate.
Adding a scoop of kaymak/Turkish cloathed cream will make it even more delicious. I hope you enjoy with a sip of famous Turkish coffee.
A lovely authum sunshine will be a plus if you are lucky.
