Cinnamon Sautéed Quince

December 01, 2019

  • 1 Local Roots quince or 1 tart apple
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons honey or pure maple syrup

  1. Wash, core, and thinly slice one quince.
  2. Melt 2 teaspoons coconut oil in a large cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the quince slices and vanilla extract and sauté, gently stirring, until they just begin to soften.
  3. Lower the heat, add a pinch of sea salt, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of water (more if needed so that the slices don’t stick to the bottom of the pan). Continue stirring until softened and beginning to caramelize. 
  4. Add 2 teaspoons runny honey (or pure maple syrup), gently stir until all the quince slices are coated, and immediately remove from heat.
