Quince, apple, honey, oats; A perfect Porridge for Autumn


Quince 1 (1 of 1)In my last post I wrote about Quinces and shared the recipe for Quince Cheese. Of course I couldn’t write about Quinces without writing a Porridge recipe, so here it is!

In this recipe I combine the seasonal fruits of apples with quinces, in a recipe that allows you to use up ‘windfall’ apples, bruised and bashed fruits not suitable for storing.

Quince Porridge  (1 of 1)

Quince, Apple, Honey Porridge


2 large windfall apples

2 tablespoons of water

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1 large cooked quince

1 1/2 cups of jumbo oats

3 cups of full cream milk

1 generous tablespoons of British honey

Serves: 2

Cooking & Preparation time: 20 mins


Wash, chop and if necessary peel, the windfall apples.

Place the apple into a deep saucepan with the water and cinnamon.

Place the saucepan over a moderate heat and cook the apple pieces until they become a purèe.

Then add the pre-cooked quince, stir and simmer for 2 mins.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside while you cook the Porridge.

Into a separate saucepan add the oats, water and milk and stir thoroughly.

Place the saucepan over a high heat and stirring constantly cook for 3 mins.

Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir in the honey.

Cook the oats for a further 2-3 mins or until you have a nice thick Porridge consistency.

Pour the Porridge into two bowls and swirl in the quince and apple purèe.

Serve hot and enjoy the aroma of autumn.
