There's a reason why there are restaurants and events dedicated to dipping different foods in melted cheese. Because it goes well with pretty much any other taste. But there is something especially tasty about the pairing of hard, ripened cheese with certain fruits. Quince, a pear-like fruit, tastes especially delicous when sauteed in cinnamon and orange juice and paired with Gruyere cheese. After sauteeing the quinces, you'll layer slices of the cheese between slices of the fruit and this will provide an easy way to balance the flavors of each, while slightly warming the cheese.

Ingredients

  • 2 quinces
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cheese (Tete ripened, or other ripened cheese)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Wash the quinces, cut into four pieces, and remove the seeds.
  3. Place in a shallow baking pan.
  4. Sprinkle with brown sugar, and drizzle with orange juice and water.
  5. Bake for about 1 hour. Baste with juice during baking. Turn over after 1/2 hour, but turn back over for the last 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the cheese crust, and cut the cheese in long strips.
  7. With the quinces still warm, layer between cheese slices, and skewer with toothpicks.
  8. Serve immediately.

This would make a unique appetizer or dessert. I was not able to find Quince, so I used apples instead. This is very sweet and tasty. I will make this again.
