Description

Related to the apple and pear, the quince is a fruit that often does not appear in recipes. This recipe, however, is all about quince. The quince is boiled and then mashed until it obtains an applesauce-like texture and then mixed with sugar, fresh lemon juice and zest, and cinnamon. The quince mixture is then poured into a prepared crust and topped with with an oat crumble before being baked to light golden brown crisp. This recipe includes instructions for making your own crust, but you can also purchase a premade crust.
