      This was a very good dinner experience. After talking with awalde I replaced the quince (which I have never seen in this part of the world) with Granny Smith apples, aded for the last 20 mins of cooking. The spicing makes this dish what it is. This is full of lovely flavor and texture. Served with whole wheat couscous and a small green salad. :D

      For this first time around, I made this recipe pretty much as given & we really did enjoy the wonderful flavor of it! Can't remember the last time I did anything with quince! Served it with a hearty, nutty whole grain bread! Couldn't have been better! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
