Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 8 min.
Confit of quinces in Macvin
Peel 4 quinces, cut into quarters and remove the core. Cut each piece in half again lengthways.

Each quince will give you 8 slices.

Stage 2

If you are not going to cook them right away, keep the quince slices in a bowl of water with a little lemon juice added or, better still, vitamin C, to stop them turning brown.

Stage 3 - 4 min.

Melt 30 g Clarified butter in a frying pan on high heat. When really hot, add 2 tablespoons caster sugar.

Stage 4 - 1 min.

Stage 5 - 6 min.

Brown on both sides.

Stage 6 - 1 min.

Then add 400 ml Jura Macvin and turn the heat down to its lowest.

Stage 7 - 1 hour
Confit of quinces in Macvin
Leave to stew gently for 40 minutes to 1 hour, adding a little more Macvin from time to time if the fruit starts to dry out.

You will see that they take on a lovely reddish colour.

Stage 8
Confit of quinces in Macvin
Once the quinces are completely soft, there should only be a very little reduced Macvin left in the bottom of the pan.

Transfer the quinces to individual dessert plates or dishes and pour a generous amount of custard over.

Serve immediately.
Remarks
You can use another fortified or dessert wine, such as Banyuls, instead of the Macvin.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately.
