We've had some lovely shining Autumn days lately.
Bright blue skies.
And warm sunshine.
I really hope it lasts into next week as it is half-term for us and C has a couple of days off.
The exquisite quince continues to dominate my life. I've managed to off-load a few on various relatives but I still have a goodly amount.
The quality is deteriorating though.
I cooked up some into a purée to store in the freezer. I like it with yoghurt for breakfast.
To do this I just peel, core and chop quinces, throw them in a pot with a little water and some sugar and cook gently until soft. Then I use a stick blender to whizz it into a purée.
Today we had one of my favourite and easiest things to do with quinces. Sir Isaac Newton's favourite pudding as described by Jane Grigson in her wonderful book Good Things.
Coring the quinces is quite an undertaking. If you don't have an apple corer then you're probably best off cutting them into quarters.
