Quince Compote with Vanilla Recipe

Quince Compote with Vanilla


Quinces need to be peeled and cooked before they develop their unique taste. Serve cold with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ vanilla bean, split in half lengthwise
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 pounds ripe quinces


  1. Combine water, sugar, vanilla bean, and cinnamon stick in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar has dissolved. Boil for 1 minute, then remove sugar syrup from heat.
  2. Fill a large bowl with water and stir in lemon juice. Peel, halve, and core quinces. Depending on their size, cut each into quarters or 8 pieces and immediately submerge in lemon water to prevent browning.
  3. Add quinces to saucepan with sugar syrup and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer until quinces are soft and have turned lightly pink, about 50 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
