Delighted by Quinces Soup

Pumpkin soup is delicious, no doubt, but does it have to be the same every bleeding autumn? No, there are alternatives such as Quinces Soup. We tried it and we are delighted.

Quinces Soup with Ginger

Serves 6, preparing time: approx. 25 minutes, cooking: approx.. 45 minutes.
  • 300 g quinces
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 150 g carrots, pealed & cut into small pieces
  • butter
  • 2 tsp. grounded ginger
  • 9 dl chicken stock
  • 1.8 dl cream
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt
  • pepper from the mill
  1. Abrade the quinces with a dry cloth, peel, core and quarter the quinces, cut them into pieces. Fry the shallots, carrots and quinces slowly in butter. Add ginger and let it fry for a brief moment. Add the chicken stock. Turn down the heat and let it boil on low heat for 45 to 50 minutes. Put some pieces of quinces and carrots aside for decoration.
  2. Mix the soup in a blender. Add cream and sugar. Boil up. Season.
  3. Put soup in the bowls. Decorate with whipped cream and the quinces and carrot pieces.

It is absolutely not the last time that I cook the quinces soup, because it is delicious, though it gives some work to prepare it.
