Rock hard and yellow in colour quinces are almost like a cross between a pear and an apple. Dating back centuries, quinces were even found in ancient Greek and Roman times. Although sometimes are hard to find, your local supermarket or farmers markets should have them throughout autumn months.
Vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B6, folate, riboflavin, calcium, iron, copper, potassium, zinc, magnesium and fibre
Quinces reduce inflammation from the inside out, by soothing the digestive system and reducing puffiness in your complexion. Full of vitamin C, quinces also help to boost your immune system and ward off wrinkles - helping you to look and feel great! Iron and copper work together to maintains healthy, lush hair without any grey strays. Copper also helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation or sun spots to provide a clear, youthful complexion.
Quinces can be eaten raw but are less tart after being cooked. Bake or cook in a saucepan, similar to a pear until warm and soft for a delicious treat on a cool night.
When selecting the fruit, quinces should be firm and yellow with minimal green colouring. And don’t forget to remove the seeds before cooking!
