Greek Yogurt with Quince and Honey > recipe October 29, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Food Recipes.

2 quinces
3 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup honey
Orange peel
3 clove spears
4 tbsp Greek halva, optional
2 cups Greek yogurt

Peel quince and cut into rectangular batons.
Add quince to water in a pot with sugar, cinnamon, 1/4 cup honey, orange peels and clove spears. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook for an hour and remove cloves and cinnamon sticks.
Scoop two dollops of yogurt on each plate, spoon quince and juice on top. Add honey and finish with a couple sprinkles of halva if you wish.

Quince > This yellow-skinned fruit looks and tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear. The hard flesh is quite dry and has a tart flavor, which makes it better cooked than raw. Quinces are available in supermarkets from October through December. Select those that are large, firm and yellow with little or no sign of green. Wrap in a plastic bag and refrigerate for up to two months.
Greek Halva > Halva is a sweet confection of ground sesame seed and honey, often with the addition of chopped dried fruit and nuts. It’s available wrapped in bars or in tins as a whole piece.
