AUTUMN QUINCE COMPOTE - COMPOTA DE MEMBRILLO #recetaseningles #recetasdeotoño

This is a very appropriate dessert for this Autumn Season, Autumn Quince Compote :-) You can find quinces in every fruit shop in the area.

Quince is a rather unusual fruit that is closely related to apples and pears. Its scientific name is Cydonia Oblonga and it is the only member of its genus Cydonia. The quince tree is deciduous and rather small, while the valuable ripened fruit is yellowish-gold color and somewhat similar to pears in shape and consistency. The value of the fruit as a food item dates back a long time, but the small tree is often grown for its ornamental quality as well, because of its attractive pale pink blossoms.

Some of the health benefits of quince include its ability to help prevent cancer, aid in weight loss, improve digestive health, reduce cholesterol, boost immune system strength, prevent gastrointestinal diseases, soothe inflammation, increase the health of your skin, decrease blood pressure, prevent allergic reactions and stimulate circulation in the cardiovascular system.

You can utilize quince in jams, jellies, and puddings, as well as used in a similar way as pears in a side dish or a breakfast food. Different countries use quince in different ways, often using the juice as a flavoring agent. However, the real benefit of quince is eating the skin and the fleshy fruit, since it is packed with beneficial nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, phenol compounds, antioxidants, and dietary fiber.

We hope you will enjoy the recipe as much as we did, cooking them of course,  but above all eating them :-)

* 2 ¼ lbs (1 kilo) fresh quinces
* 2 ½ cups (¼ kilo) white sugar
* 4 cinnamon sticks
* 2 cloves
* ½ cup (125 ml) mineral water

* To start with, we are going to wash, peel the quinces and cut them in slices.
* Then we are going to put them in a pot and add the cinnamon sticks, the cloves, the sugar and the water.
* We are going to boil everything for approximately 30 minutes on medium heat.
* Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick or a knife to ensure that the quinces are tender, then our great dessert is ready :-)

We hope you enjoy them very much :-) This is a very nice dessert you can prepare and have it also for breakfast, tea time, after dinner, … :-)
