I was given some quinces, and not really knowing much about this fruit I decided to try and make Quince Compote with them. This is so yum!
From The Margaret Fulton Crock-pot Cookbook
Cooking time: 10 – 12 hours on low
½ - ¾ cup sugar
Rub 5 quinces with a cloth to remove the down. Put them whole and unpeeled into the Crockpot with 1 cup of water. Cover, turn heat to Low and cook overnight or for 10 – 12 hours. They will become a deep amethyst colour and should be soft but not breaking up. When they are cool enough to handle, peel, halve and with a teaspoon remove core. Cut off blossom end, cut into slices or leave in halves. Arrange quinces in a glass bowl. Make syrup with the liquid from the crockpot and ½ to ¾ cup sugar. Cool. Pour over quinces. Serve with cream if liked.
I made my all time favourite pie, Lemon Meringue J
A foggy morning.
Doing repairs to
the fan in our oven.
Minus five here two mornings ago...brrr!
Our hens are laying more,
we are getting between 7 - 11 eggs a day now J
We needed more wood for the chilly nights...
Some of our girls.
Mandarins make excellent juice.
And cake J
Organising my cupboards...
These spices are located above my stove and have needed sorting for so long.
All listed now and easy to find J
Labeling is good J
We have had more than one visit from a fox.
We lost four of our girls and a rooster this Winter. The fox has been coming onto our property in the middle of the day and taking them. We cant let the chooks roam around at the moment as it is not safe, and they are not happy about it!
We are already picking some of our Quandongs. These are usually not ready until September. I made a wild peach crumble with this lot J
I am still picking tomatoes from our summer plants, but not for much longer as severe frosts over the past few nights have turned the plants black.
And another pretty end to the day...
