Fall Tart Quince Almond Tarte Tatin
When ripe, a quince is a light golden colour. This fruit looks like an oversized, lumpy pear but, despite their shape, they make for a sweet dessert. Apples, pears, apricots, plums, peaches, almonds and quince share the same genetic heritage, they all come from the rose (Rosaceae) family.
This quince almond tarte tatin (tatin aux coings et aux amandes) is a fall dessert that celebrates the slow-ripening fruit. It’s a bit of work to peel quince, but you will be pleased with the sweet end result.
Quince Almond Tarte Tatin
This tart tatin aux coings et aux amandes (quince and almond) is a twist on the classic apple version. Quince takes a bit of work to peel, but the result is worth the effort.
Eplucher les coings (il faut un bon couteau mais finalement, ça n'est pas plus difficile que de couper de la courge...) et en prévoir beaucoup car s'ils sont "d'un jardin", ils sont forcément un peu abîmés.
To peel the quince it takes a good knife but finally, it's no more difficult than cutting squash. Select more fruit than you think you will need because if they are fresh from the garden, they are usually a little less than perfect.
