Roast Turkey with Quince Recipe

By far one of the best and tastiest steaks of the season I could say. Salty, sweet, sour is an excellent combination! And the aroma of ripe quinces… brilliant!

The recipe is very easy, the meat remains tender and juicy and the cooked quinces only come to complete this wonderful picture.

But a lot of talk is a bit spoiling at this moment, because my mouth is already watering again and I invite you to stay with me for the short list of ingredients, as well as the step-by-step roast turkey with quince recipe.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C or 360 °F.

2. In an oven tray, put the turkey leg, a quince cut into large pieces and half the amount of wine. Season with salt and pepper. We cover with an aluminum foil, closing the edges tightly so that it is airtight. Put in the oven for about 2 hours..

3. Wash and clean the quinces, then cut them into 2/2 cm cubes. While the meat is in the oven, we make the sauce. Start by melting the butter, add the quince cubes and fry them on medium-high until they are lightly browned. This step will take about 3-4 minutes..

4. Add the sugar, the rest of the wine and cook for another 2-3 minutes

5. When the cooking time for the turkey leg has passed and the meat is soft and tender, take the quinces out of the tray and clean them of the seeds.

6. We put the obtained pulp in a saucepan, add the liquid from the other quinces and mix until we get a creamy sauce.

7. Place the quince cubes on top of the turkey leg, raise the temperature to 220 °C (430°F) and bake for another 4-6 minutes until they are nicely browned.

8. We served with mashed potatoes, exactly as you see in the attached picture. I placed the turkey leg over the mashed potatoes, and I added the quince cubes and the sauce here and there.
