Re: Quince The hairy fat pear fruit

Never heard of Quittenbrot but when I look at the recipe slammer linked it's the same as Quittengelee.
In Switzerland we call the Quince jelly "Quittengelee" and I absolutely love that stuff but shy away from the work involved. So Migros is my "Oma"

As to LoveDoctor's original question: Many people don't make use of their quince (quinces?), so yes, I'd ask around and if you don't find the owner of the tree take some. As long as you don't supply the entire EF with them, you should be okay.

Re: Quince The hairy fat pear fruit

I actually work them into:

Gelee/jam
Syrup
Pulp (like apple sauce, but with quinces)
Liqueur
Slices in sweet brine with Cognac (remaining liquid is then cooked to gelee too)
Dehydrate them
Make a ham or green bacon on a bed of quince slices in the earthenware pot(Römertopf)
They are also part of a loaf of fruitbread I make around this time of year
Confectionery called ‚Pästli‘ , a sweet that keeps forever, almost.... and is what slammer calls Quittenbrot

@slammer, if I get quinces, I‘ll see to send you some Quittenbrod, ok?
@Corsebou, thanks for the idea, stupid me didn‘t think to and check there, we got wuite a few such shops here.

Nope, it isn‘t gelee!!

It is the fruitpulp that remains after making fruit juice for gelee, sieved and cooked down with sugar, occ. a little red wine for colour and turned into a sweet.

But it says "Quittengelee" on the glass
However, as I said, I don't know how it's made (well, now I know ) I just love it.

Re: Quince The hairy fat pear fruit

Tip for hasty housewives and/or careless cooks.

If you make both quince puree and carrot and pumpkin soup on the same day and put both in containers into the fridge ready for use, do make sure it is the pumpkin soup you have poured into a saucepan before you cheerfully chop sausages into it..

Surprising how similar they look when one isn't paying attention.

Re: Quince The hairy fat pear fruit

I find they are nice sliced, with mince. I always have a runcible spoon handy for such meals.

Are you accompanied by the Owl and the Pussycat dancing hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, by the light of the moon?

Re: Quince The hairy fat pear fruit

@slammer

Quince preserving in various ways has begun.... this 5liter pot ( to get juice for gelee and pulp) should give enough pulp in the end to get some Quittenbrot winging the way to you😉

So start typing your addy and pm it to me..... bear in mind, that the pulp has to dry for some considerable time, so it may take a month until they arrive at your place.
