Apple Quince Crisp

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

I couldn't believe how wonderful the two fruits taste together. It wasn't easy to peel quince, but well worth it.

A great way to use quince fruit and old apples. I had 3 apples and 3 quince in the fridge. The apples were a little wrinkled. Used lime zest & lime juice (all I had) for tartness & too keep fruit from browning. Used half brown sugar & half splenda for sweetening. Added a few cloves & a handful of golden raisen also. For the topping I used instant oatmeal, and chopped almonds & pecans for extra crunch. Bottom line, my wife thought it tasted "wonderful" but she couldn't figure out where I had gotten the fresh peaches. The quince turn a light yellow pink when cooked & my wife couldn't quite figure out the taste. If anyone has extra quince, try them in any number of recipes with apples - they are a marriage of naturals. I would recommend this recipe & will make it again.
