What to do with quince, the mysterious fruit of winter

Don't: eat it raw. Do: slow-cook it in these sweet and savoury recipes.

Is quince the most mysterious fruit of winter? The bulbous fruit is a curious specimen in the greengrocer, with a yellow exterior and tough, floury insides. But give it some slow and gentle cooking and something magical happens. While many only make desserts with quince, adding it to your one-pot duck dinners or tajine chicken or roasted pork recipes, adds a hint of tangy sweetness to your classic weekend dishes.
