This simple one-pot dinner has lamb, root vegetables, and quince. Quince is a lesser known fruit that’s currently out of season locally. However, in our globally supplied produce aisles, we have year-round access to it and many other interesting items. It’s round and bright yellow, a little like a pear, a little like an apple, and very tough when raw. It can be made into jam or jelly, which requires a lot of sugar, or roasted, which softens and caramelizes it.
Recently I teamed up quince with parsnips, carrots, and lamb and roasted them in the oven. It was a quick and lovely weeknight dinner that I wouldn’t be ashamed to serve to company (perhaps by substituting a small lamb shoulder roast and cooking longer).Pin It
