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
