If you’re making a big batch of poached quince to use in many recipes (as we do!), then be sure to hit the pause button and enjoy a dessert of poached quince. As your own reward. For poaching all those quinces, and getting ahead of the game. And they’re poached already… so this gets made in minutes. Enjoy on its own and on your own, or with a plop of honey yogurt or ice cream. You deserve it!
But perhaps it’s just this dessert that you’re after. In this case, follow our recipe for poaching quince, from start to finish.
Either way, it’s a win:win.
4 quince halves, poached using our recipe how-to
Scoop about 2 cups of the quince poaching liquid into a small pot and bring to a boil. Allow the liquid to reduce by about half.
Turn off the heat and then add the quince halves. Let the quince warm in this liquid, and then serve.
