I've put your recipe into Recipes Susanne - let me know if you would prefer to do it yourself :)
Thanks Lissa :)
Thanks Susanne !
Found some today at Lawnton Country Mkts Susanne, for $4.99kg. I bought one...not sure if one is any use but I was curious never having seen one before.
Thanks Susanne. I'll try one of your suggestions. I did wonder if I cut add cut pieces to the baked rice custard I'm making?
These are quite big fruit - about a handful each.
I've only ever cooked them by themselves whole or quartered, over a low heat slowly.
They are certainly soft and edible well before they start to change colour so you could give it a go.
You could try very thin slivers but the fruit is hard to cut raw.
When raw I've only cut the fruit into quarters or eighths.
Thinking aloud I've never tried grating or cutting rounds from the outside of the whole fruit, I feel it may still tend to 'splinter' but maybe give that a go and tell us how you manage.
Too late this time - custard is cooked :)
I think I need to get to know the fruit from scratch before I start doing anything random with them. I'll cook this one as you suggest above.
Coco's at Buranda have them this week 12/6 - they are ripe and $4.99 kg - which is a good price. I get mine usually from a friend in Stanthorpe, and make jams, poached and jelly!
I bought some quinces a few days ago : 18/6/13 from Milton Fruit Bowl at 12 Baroona Rd Milton Shopping Village.
I cooked them in a sugar syrup with vanilla bean .
