QUINCE ESSENTIAL APPLE CRISP

      Yield: 8 to 10 servings

      3 quinces, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
      2 apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
      1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon juice

      1 1/3 cups (320 ml) broken walnuts, coarsely ground
      1 cup (240 ml) brown sugar
      1/2 cup (120 ml) black raisins
      1/2 cup (120 ml) whole-wheat pastry flour
      1/3 cup (80 ml) old fashioned rolled oats
      2 tablespoons natural sesame seeds
      1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
      1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
      Pinch salt

      1/2 cup (120 ml) plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
      1/4 cup (60 ml) water
      1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon rose water (optional)
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract

   1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (Gas Mark 4) and have ready a lightly oiled, 3-quart (3 liter) baking dish. Stir the sliced quinces and apples together in a large bowl and toss with the lemon juice.
   2. Combine the walnuts, raisins, brown sugar, pastry flour, rolled oats, sesame seeds, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt in a separate large bowl, toss well, add to the quince-apple bowl. Mix well to distribute the spices evenly.
   3. Stir together the maple syrup, water, rose water, and vanilla extract in the medium bowl and add to the quince and apple bowl, mixing thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking pan and cover with aluminum foil, shiny side down.
   4. Bake for 45 minutes, remove the aluminum foil, and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer. Fork test the quinces for tenderness. If they are tender, remove the baking dish from the oven, cool slightly, and serve warm.

Note:
Quince Essential Apple Crisp can be made a day or two ahead and gently reheated at 350 degrees (Gas Mark 4) for 15 minutes. If the baking dish is glass and is taken from the refrigerator, start warming it in a cold oven to avoid cracking the glass.

For an extravagant dessert, spoon a portion of the baked Quince Essential Apple Crisp into a bowl and top with a generous scoop of soy-based vanilla ice cream.

What I think is funny as everything in the recipe is yummy, why put the quince in there! Ha ha - it is almost here is a great recipe IN SPITE OF the Quince!  I have the same feeling towards rhubarb, so bury it amongst the other stuff and I will eat it.  Quince appear to be very good for you, so there ya go! Double duty!
