Top Rated Quince Recipes

Pork belly is an extremely fatty cut of meat. Cooking the belly slowly allows the fat to render down; this rendered fat then helps to baste the meat.Turning up the oven towards the latter stages of cooking results in a crisp skin, not dissimilar to that of cracklings, or skin, on a pork roast.While Wade Murphy, executive head chef at The Lodge at Doonbeg in County Clare, Ireland, likes to serve this roasted pork with caramelized quince, you could also serve the pork with baby potatoes, roasted with lots of butter and parsley, and Savoy cabbage, sliced thinly and sautéed with spring onions and small pieces of diced apple.

Quince Cheese
Quince cheese is one of my favorite things to make with this fragrant fruit, preserving all its amazing texture and perfume for months to come. The cheese has the most enchanting deep-red color, a result of the slow and gentle cooking process. It makes a delicious accompaniment to actual cheese, especially (and famously) Spanish manchego, or a ripe, blue-veined cheese, or a soft goat or sheep cheese. You can also try it with roast meats, such as pheasant or chicken, or with baked ham. I quite often melt a spoonful into gravy to give it a fruity sweetness.Recipe excerpted with permission from Gather: Everyday Seasonal Food from a Year in Our Landscapes by Gill Meller.

Walnut-Crusted Quince and Manchego Bites
Quince paste, known as dulce de membrillo in Spanish-speaking countries, is made by cooking the hard, tart flesh of this fruit (a relative of apples and pears) with water and sugar until it turns red and sticky and holds its shape. It’s available in specialty grocery stores and online. In Spain, quince paste is commonly paired with manchego cheese, made from raw sheep’s milk, as a breakfast item or snack. This recipe fancies up the combination with toasted spiced walnuts and chopped parsley and it also works as a breakfast dish.Fast Food, Good Food More Than 150 Quick and Easy Ways to Put Healthy, Delicious Foods on the Table courtesy Little, Brown and Company Copyright © 2015 by Andrew Weil, MD

This recipe, for home cooks, calls for store-bought ingredients. Although, it may take some time to make, but once you take a bit into the lobster roll and herb salad, you'll know that it was all worth it. Chef Marcus Samuelsson also suggests you pair it with the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Chardonnay for the best flavors.
