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.
