DIRECTIONS

  • Place the dried fruit in a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the purple corn to a large pot and cover with 10 cups of water.
  • Chop the pineapple into small bite-size pieces and reserve. Add the pineapple rind to the pot.
  • Quarter the quince (or substitute a green apple) and add to the pot, along with the cinnamon sticks and the cloves.
  • Bring water to a boil, and boil uncovered for about 30 minutes, until liquid is a deep purple color and the quince is very soft.
  • Strain the liquid, and return to pot. Discard the corn, quince, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and pineapple rind.
  • Separate 1/2 cup of the liquid into a small bowl. Stir the corn starch into the separated liquid until completely mixed and set aside.
  • Add the sugar, pineapple pieces, and a pinch of salt to the liquid. Peel and dice an apple and add to the mixture.
  • Bring mixture to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apple is soft.
  • Whisk the corn starch mixture into the simmering mixture and continue to cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes more or until mixture has thickened.
  • Remove from heat stir in the lime juice. Serve chilled or at room temperature, sprinkled with cinnamon.
