October is such a beautiful month with autumn dishes and desserts! To enjoy the seasonal fruits, we used quinces that we love and made a delicious dessert with red wine and spices.
Our kitchen (and the entire house) smelled cinnamon, cloves and wine!
Next time we will replace the quinces (because they are unfortunately a bit difficult to cut) with pears or apples!
Try this easy and light dessert and tell us how you liked it!

Quince in red wine
- 3-4 medium quinces
- juice of 1 lemon
- 4-5 tbsp. unrefined brown sugar adapt to your taste
- 300 ml sweet red wine
- 2 tsp. grated clove spice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- Peel the quinces, cut them into quarters and put them in a bowl with the lemon juice.
- Put the quinces (and their seeds to thicken the syrup) together with the lemon juice and all the other ingredients in a saucepan. Boil on low heat with the lid closed for about 30 minutes.
- In the last ten minutes, open the lid to help the syrup get thicker, stir and cook over low to medium heat, by taking care not to burn it.
- Serve with cinnamon and any syrup of your choice (maple, fig, carob honey, agave, etc.)
- Serve warm or cold.
- You can also bake them in the oven.
- You can replace quinces with pears or apples.
