Quince and apple compote

Quince and apple compote

This compote is a tricky balancing act between the characteristic quince flavour and just enough apples to sweeten it.

You should end up with a compote that has a delicate quince flavour rounded out by the apples and brown sugar.

Step by step recipe

1 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #1Thoroughly wash 600 g quinces. 2 min.
2 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #2Peel the quinces and cut into quarters. Remove the core and cut the remaining flesh into small pieces.

You will see just how difficult this is to do. Raw quinces are very hard to cut up and the pieces will oxydise and turn brown very rapidly.

From 600 g of whole quinces you should end up with about 350 g of prepared fruit. Make a note of the weight.
15 min.
3 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #3Put the quince pieces into a saucepan, add 60 g water, then cover and put on gentle heat to cook. 20 min.
4 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #4After 20 minutes or so, the pieces of quince will be soft and there should be very little liquid left.
5 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #5Peel 500 g apple and cut into small pieces.

Add the same weight of apple to the pan as quince (350 g in our example).
10 min.
6 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #6Put back on low heat and leave to cook...
7 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #7...until the apples are tender. 7 min.
8 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #8Finish by blending to give a smooth compote. 2 min.
9 Quince and apple compote : Photo of step #9Leave to cool before transferring into jars. 3 min.

Remarks

You can vary the proportion of quince to apple, starting from this initial half-and-half recipe, depending on which flavour you wish to bring out.

If you prefer a smooth compote, put the cooked fruit pieces through a vegetable mill on "fine" setting, just before Step 5, rather like for quince paste.
