Poety inspired cuisine!

“They dined on mince and slices of quince

Which they ate with a runciple spoon”

Following in the footsteps of the owl and the pussycat, thought it would be good to try some quince. These weird fruit take some cooking, a 2hour slow poaching and served on toast seemed to do the trick

The quince in it's raw state


Very tough skin but needs a peel







Chop and core the beast. Note its colour

In a pan and covered with water. Add a clove if you like

The flesh will change colour as it is cooked. Serve the pink poached quince and eat with relish

    The colour when chopped up is because it is so difficult to chop it up safely *and* fast enough to put into lemon water to maintain the creamy colour it is supposed to be. Really looks like meat on that bread though. And – er – what happened to your runciple spoon?!
