    Zurie's Note:

    This old-fashioned, tart fruit is actually extremely versatile. It can't really be eaten raw, although a friend of mine eats thin raw slices with salt and loves it! It makes a gorgeous see-through jelly, lovely jam, and a wonderful stewed side dish with pork or ham. Keep the seeds: they are rich in pectin and can help other jams to set; slices can be added to casseroles and roasts for a tart fruity taste. Here's a healthy, very easy and delicious dessert to make when you come across quinces.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 400 deg F/200 deg Celsius.
    2. 2
      Remove the cores of the quinces so there is a sizable hole right through the fruit. A real corer helps, otherwise use a sharp knife with a thin blade and cut out the core carefully.
    3. 3
      Don't even try to peel them.
    4. 4
      Place upright in a lightly greased oven dish, close together preferably.
    5. 5
      Mix the creme fraiche or thick cream with the caster sugar and vanilla, and fill the cores with this mixture.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle the granulated sugar generously over the 4 quinces.
    7. 7
      Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 40 minutes, or until quite soft.
    8. 8
      Serve warm with ice cream or warm custard.
