Yield:
6 baked quince halves

Ingredients

  • 3 quince, unpeeled, washed, halved and cored

  • 18 whole cloves

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ½ cup port wine

  • 3 cinnamon sticks

  • cup white sugar

  • cup heavy cream, whipped (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Press three cloves into each quince half. Place the fruit in a roasting pan cut-side down. Add the water, wine, and cinnamon sticks to the pan; sprinkle the sugar over the quince.

  3. Bake the fruit in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 35 to 40 minutes. Turn the quince right-side up and bake until tender, about 10 more minutes.

  4. Remove the pan from the oven and let the quince cool slightly. Transfer each quince half to a plate and drizzle with a tablespoon of juices from the roasting pan and a dollop of whipped cream.
