Poached Quince Dessert

Quince Dessert |

Simple Poached Quince. A super light fruit dessert flavored with cloves and enriched with cream.


•    2 quinces
•    4 tbsp sugar
•    1 ½ cup water
•    A few cloves
•    Cream for garnish


  1. Peel the quinces and cut them into two. Discard the seeds, but don’t throw them away. We’ll use them because they give the red color to the dessert.
  2. Pour the water in a pot. Put the quinces in it and place 1 tbsp sugar on each half as you see in the picture. Add the seeds for color and a few cloves for a nice aroma. Put the lid on the pot and bring it to boil.
  3. When it starts to boil, lower the heat to minimum and boil it for one and a half hour. Do not try to stir it with a spoon, just shake the pot a few times.
  4. Serve warm or cold.
  5. To serve it, take one half of quince on a plate and garnish it with some cream. You may also garnish it with some walnut or pistachio, or you may prefer it plain.
