Roast Quince With Cinnamon & Manuka Honey

Enough for 2 people

2 quinces
1 cinnamon stick
2 bay leaves
1 lemon
75 ml manuka honey
175 g caster sugar

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. If your quinces are furry (some varieties are), wash under warm water to remove. Cut the quinces in half and remove the core. Peel the lemon and extract the juice. Place the cinnamon, bay leaves, lemon peel and juice into a small roasting dish, just big enough to fit the 4 quince halves side by side. Place the quinces on top cut side up. Pour over the manuka honey and sprinkle with the caster sugar. Pour in enough hot water to reach half way up the fruit. Cover the roasting dish with foil and bake for 2 hours.

Check whether they are cooked after 90 minutes with a skewer, if it goes through them easily they are done. The quinces will be very fragile, so leave them to cool in the roasting dish.

Great served with ice cream, whipped cream or even a goats’ cheese such as Ragstone
