Baked quinces are a great fall dessert. Quince is like an apple or pear, with a little more tartness. The quince is not a very popular fruit in the West but can be found in many supermarkets.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 3 cups warm water

  2. Bake in a 350 F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until quinces are a golden color and soft.

  3. Allow it to sit 15 minutes before serving.
