  1. Prepare the poaching liquid

    Pour 7 cups of water into a sauce pan. Add 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of honey. Add any other flavoring agents you want, such as a halved lemon, a split vanilla bean, a few anise pods or a few cloves. Heat the liquid on medium-high.

  2. Prepare the quince fruit

    Get six large quince fruits. Gently rinse the quince and wipe away the soft fuzz on the skin. Peel the quince, and cut the fruit into quarters. Remove the core with a sharp knife, and slice the fruit into 1/4-inch thick pieces.

  3. Poach the quince

    Add the fruit to the liquid, and simmer until the fruit is fork-tender. This may take one to two hours. Serve warm or store the fruit with the liquid in the refrigerator, and use it in a dessert recipe.
