Quince compote … كومبوت السفرجل

Standard

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds quince (about 3 large)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Optional flavorings: Cloves, star anise and/or whole cinnamon

Method:

1. Peel the quince with vegetable peeler.

2. Cut the quince in half, slice into quarters and cut away the core and seeds.

3. Place cut quince into a bowl of water: As you finish with each quince quarter, place in a large bowl of water to prevent browning.

4. In a medium size saucepan, mix together water, sugar, and any flavorings you like; simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

5. Add the quince and cover with a lid.

6. Simmer for 30 minutes, or until the quince is turning pink and is tender.

7. Refrigerate in the poaching liquid: When the quince is pink and tender, turn off the heat and either strain and use right away, or refrigerate the quince in the poaching liquid for up to 7 days.

Enjoy!!
