    Boozy Quinces With Gorgonzola And Mascarpone

    This satisfying, sweet and savoury dish is pudding and cheese course in one.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes to 45 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes to 1 hour 5 minutes 60 minutes 5 minutes

    Ingredients

    • 1 Lemon
    • 6 tbsp Clear honey
    • 2 Star anise
    • 1 Cinnamon stick
    • 1 Bay leaf
    • 1 Rosemary sprig
    • 600ml Red wine
    • 4 Quinces, peeled, halved and cored
    • 500g Gorgonzola
    • 250g Mascarpone

    Method

    1. Peel 3 strips of rind from the lemon; leave the pith behind. Put in a large pan with the honey, herbs, spices and wine; bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the quinces, topping up with water to cover if necessary. Put a lid on, return to the boil, then turn down the heat. Poach for 20–45 minutes until tender, turning once.
    2. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Take out the spices and herbs and boil until reduced by a third and slightly syrupy. Leave to cool – it will thicken further. Serve half a quince per person, with some syrup and the cheeses.

    Drinks recommendation

    The Corker recommends- This needs a red sweet enough for the quinces but can cope with the salty cheese
