A lovely combination of quince and celeriac!

  • ½ quince, seeds discarded and chopped
  • ½ orange, squeezed
  • ½ lemon, sequeezed
  • half bunch of fresh dill, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¾ cup hot water


  1. Put carrot, celeriac, and quince into the pot in this order.
  2. Pour orange juice and lemon juice onto them.
  3. Add olive oil and salt. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  4. Then stir it and pour hot water into it.
  5. Cook for 15-20 minutes until tender. Do not overcook it or the veggies get mushy. Take it from heat, add chopped fresh dill and stir.
