Mix both flours with half of the sugar, the butter
and the egg and knead this well. Take 2/3 and roll it out; line a greased
pie form with this dough. Mix the quinces with the remaining sugar and
the spices and put this in the pie. Roll out the remaining dough and
cut it in strips. Decorate the top of the pie with these strips. Bake
the pie in the oven for 50 minutes at 165 degrees
The quince is tasty
very aromatic but does not taste very well if you eat it raw. The quince
contain a lot of pectin and are therefore very suitable to prepare
jams and marmalade. The word
is actually derived from the Portuguese word for quince, "marmelo".
The fruit has been used for many centuries, the Romans would prepare
it with honey. In the Oriental cuisine,
the quince is also used in savoury dishes.
