Hi everyone! Today I want to share a different recipe that is a perfect winter desert. This is a famous traditional Turkish desert (Turkish name is Ayva tatlisi) & it is one of my favourite fruit desserts.This is quite easy to prepare and it is delicious to serve it with thick cream or ice cream. Even my daughter who is not a fan of raw quince loves this dessert. Hope you guys like it too!
I wish it was easy to find quince in the summer but unfortunately the season for this fruit starts in the fall. Aside from this dessert quince is also delicious in jams and jellies. This fruit is rich in vitamin and minerals, and it also contains high amount of antioxidants. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin C boosts immunity to protect from cold, flu and infections.
