Those of you lucky enough to have a quince tree, you can make this dish whenever you fancy. Always hard on the outside (if it's not, it's rotten), a ripe quince has a distinctive perfume and a soft, yellow colour.

½ cup prunes, pitted and finely chopped
½ cup pecan nuts, finely chopped
2 tbsp honey
3 quinces washed with the core

Pre heat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Remove the seeds from the vanilla pod and soak in 1 tbs boiling water.

Combine well with the prunes, pecans and honey. Cut the quinces in half and scoop out the core and hard inner casing. Stuff the quince with the prune mix and squeeze 2 cloves through the skin of each fruit.
Place in a baking tray half a cup water and the remaining vanilla pod. Cover tightly with foil and bake in the oven for around an hour or until tender.
Cut the quince in half and serve with sheep's yoghurt.

Note: Quinces are extremely high in pectin, a soluble fibre with numerous health benefits including prevention of gallstones, lowering cholesterol, normalising high blood sugar levels and reducing the absorption of heavy metals.
