In a bowl, mix the soft butter at room temperature with the cream, egg, egg yolk and vinegar until you get a cream. Add flour mixed with baking powder and salt. Knead a smooth dough that you wrap in a foil and put it in the fridge for an hour.
Meanwhile, grate the quinces on the large-mesh grater, add the sugar and mix. Put the pan on the fire and let the quinces harden together with the sugar until the juice left by the quince decreases. Add cinnamon and vanilla sugar. Let it boil slowly for another 1 minute then let the composition cool completely.
Take the dough out of the fridge and spread it on the well-floured work table. Stretch a rectangle 40 cm long and 20 cm wide.
Spread the quince puree over the entire surface of the dough, then roll the dough as tight as possible. The dough roll must be exactly the same thickness.
You grab one end of the roll and start rotating it inward, giving it the shape of a snail. Prepare a cake form with a diameter of 18 cm, which you cover with baking paper. Put the dough snail inside.
Put the tray in the preheated oven at 190 degrees Celsius, for 40-45 minutes, until it browns nicely and the dough has a crispy crust.
Remove from the oven, leave it in the pan for about 20 minutes to cool. After it has cooled well, dust it with sugar.

8 steps to prepare quince tart:
1. To prepare the dough, mix the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and mix until it is integrated into the composition.
2. Mix 3 tablespoons of cold water with vinegar in a small bowl, then pour over the composition with butter and flour. Stir again until a moist dough is formed. Add more cold water if the dough is dry. Spread the dough, put in a cling film and leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
3. To make the filling, put ice cubes in a pan and set aside. Mix the sugar, honey and unsalted butter in a heat-resistant pan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
4. Increase the heat from medium to high and simmer until the caramel is amber, for about 8 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the caramel does not stick to the pan.

Quince recipes & # 8211 10 special recipes, sweet and salty
Why did I think of making a collection of quince recipes? Because autumn is already coming to an end, at least calendarally speaking, and we have less and less fruit. Quinces are & # 8220last warriors & # 8221. These fruits are not very beautiful and not too tasty, they are not raw. Instead, they are full of surprises when you cook them.
Quinces are delicious even baked, plain, with a little sugar, but quince jam is really wonderful spread over some pancakes. Quince liqueur does not need any other flavor, quince cakes are sublime. Did you know that even quince food is made and that it is so tasty? But do you like pickled quinces? They go well with any steak.
Let's talk, quinces are fantastic fruits! Let's see what we do with them. We have prepared below a collection of 10 quince recipes, of all kinds: sweet, salty and liquid, which excellently highlight these surprising fruits.
What alcohol do we use for a homemade liqueur?
A fine homemade liqueur must have an alcoholic strength between 22 and 30 degrees. We also make other natural homemade drinks and they are all prepared according to logical recipes, based on scientific principles from chemistry or pharmacy. That is, we do alcoholic maceration, not acetic fermentation (vinegar, borscht) or alcoholic fermentation because we do not want to create new alcohol from carbohydrates (as is done with brandy). We never put the fruits to ferment with the sugar (in a warm place) but we put them directly in alcohol and keep them cool. Our products are clearly superior and due to the fact that we use only pure double refined alcohol of 96 degrees or simple vodka (vodka of 37-40 degrees) & # 8211 excluding brandy, brandy or brandy. How to make fine fruit liqueur with something like that? No strong Transylvanian in their head spoils the goodness of plum brandy or brandy (pears, apricots, etc.) by making it a liqueur! We are talking about real brandy of 50-60 degrees, not about stinky piglets below 40 degrees (a friend's words: & # 8211 Those are fever me, not brandy!). Who made cherries according to our recipe said that in his life he does not do it any other way! Look at the gorgeous color and I assure you that the taste and aroma are just right! The recipe here.
By the same method I made green walnut liqueur with vanilla (walnut) & # 8211 a delicacy! I leave the recipe here.
I tell you the quantities for a 750 ml bottle / jar. However, the amount of alcohol can also vary depending on how small or large you cut the quinces and how the pieces are placed in the container.
Molded dough (made of leavened dough)
Sift the flour, wash the eggs, disinfect and rinse with cold water. Heat the butter to a temperature of 35-40 ° C.
Telemea cheese is washed and grated. Dill is cleaned, washed, and finely chopped. The milk boils.
Rub the yeast with the sugar and dissolve in warm milk (35-40 ° C). Mix with flour. The mayonnaise is obtained over which a little flour is sprinkled and left to rise at a temperature of 35-40 ° C for about 30-40 minutes.
Mix the eggs with the salt and sugar, add the warm milk (35-40 ° C) and the lemon and orange zest. A composition is obtained that is mixed with mayonnaise and kneaded with flour.
After incorporating the entire amount of flour, gradually add the hot butter and knead until completely incorporated. Kneading is considered complete when the dough comes off the walls of the vessel and air bubbles appear on the surface, after which it is left to rise in the covered vessel for 60-75 minutes.
The dough is divided into two equal parts that stretch with the shit on the greased board, in rectangular sheets with a size of about 80/40 cm and a thickness of 0.5-0.6 cm. Place the filling in an even layer on each sheet, then roll. You get two rolls that are shaped like a snail, place them in a round tray, greased or lined with baking paper and leave to rise for 20-25 minutes. Grease with egg and place in the preheated oven, where it is baked at a moderate temperature (180-220 ° C) for 40-50 minutes.
Thursday's recipe. Poultry dish with quince (Romanian recipes to your taste)
There is a custom that Romanians do not cook dishes with sweet sauces, that they are not, in a sense, Romanian recipes. However, I remember with pleasure all my grandmother's recipes, with meat and plums or quince.
I had a few scented quinces left on the living room cupboard, sitting there in the middle of autumn and twisted from time to time, so that they don't fade on the side where I sit. Dressed still in their fluff and with a paper-like leaf, to remind them of the towering tree from which we picked them. I put their smiles, one by one, in the cup of mulled wine to drink on the cold winter days.
But for those who sit quietly at the edge of the closet, for these I have another "companion" in mind. Prepare them in a dish with poultry and sweet, creamy sauce.
You need a one-kilogram poultry (an 'old' chicken '), 100 g butter, a few tablespoons of flour, a phar and a half of milk, a quarter of a pound of sour cream, two or three tablespoons of sugar and a pound and a half of quince. & # 160

Baked whole turkey with quince, video recipe
Baked whole turkey with quince, recipe in text format (printable):
Preliminary preparation of turkey
1. For this recipe we will use a whole turkey. If you bought it frozen, thaw it slowly in the refrigerator, the process can take up to 48 hours for a large turkey. Another way to defrost the turkey would be with the dedicated function of a steam oven (I have such an oven, I had to repeat the defrost function 3 times & # 8211 which means 90 minutes in total & # 8211 because a 3.8 kg turkey to thaw completely). Carefully clean the turkey of any traces of feathers on the skin and intestines inside.
Baked whole turkey, brine
The brine will not only give the bird a taste, but it will also give it a lot of tenderness. This process takes some time, so it's a good idea to carefully calculate when we get to work, correlating it with serving turkey steak.
1. Choose a pot / bowl large enough to fit the whole turkey. In a separate pot, mix the brine salt with the six liters of water (at room temperature) until completely dissolved. Add the chopped onion, the garlic cloves cut in half, the bay leaf and the peppercorns.
2. Pour the brine over the turkey placed in the larger bowl. The bird must be completely covered with brine, if it tends to rise to the surface it is placed on top of a weight (a plate, etc.). Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (that's all I left), maximum 12 hours.
3. After this time, remove the turkey from the brine & # 8211 from which we will save only the garlic, we will throw the rest & # 8211 and drain the liquid well, then dab with absorbent kitchen towels, both on the skin and and inside, to languish. Leave it at kitchen temperature for at least an hour, to return to room temperature, it is not recommended to cook cold meat, as it is removed from the refrigerator.
Baked whole turkey with quince, seasoning and baking
1. Finely chop the garlic cloves recovered from the brine, peel off the leaves on one of the rosemary branches and finely chop with a knife. Put the garlic and rosemary in a mortar, add 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon of coarse salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper, then crush together until a semi-dry paste.
2. Rub the turkey both inside and out with the paste prepared in the previous point.
3. Peel the onion and quince (quinces) and cut into quarters or halves (depending on size).

4. Insert the pieces of onion and quince inside the turkey, then fix it with a rosemary stick that we will put in the bird's cavity. Gather the turkey's legs and tie them tightly with kitchen twine and stick the wings to the carcass, fixing them with rosemary sticks.
5. Place the prepared turkey in a tray, preferably one with a lid, and if you don't have one, you can cover the tray with baking paper or aluminum foil.
How do we calculate the cooking time in the oven for a whole turkey
1. Bake the whole turkey, covered, in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius, ventilated, or 190 degrees Celsius, static.
2. For each kilogram of turkey (weighed cleaned, raw), count 50 minutes of cooking in the oven. Thus, for my 3.8 kilogram turkey, it took 3 hours and fifteen minutes to cook.
Some examples, calculated for different turkey weights:
- for a 3 kilogram turkey & # 8211 2:30 hours
- for a 4 kilogram turkey & # 8211 3:33 hours
- for a 5 kilogram turkey & # 8211 4:15 hours
Whole turkey in the oven, glaze, browning and rest
1. Optionally, you can prepare a glaze for the turkey in the oven, which will give it not only a more beautiful appearance, but also a pleasant taste, caramelizing beautifully on the skin of the bird. I prepared the icing by mixing well the 4 teaspoons of quince jam with 2 teaspoons of dijon mustard.
2. After the cooking time, calculated according to the weight of the turkey, has passed, remove the turkey from the oven, uncover it and dilute the icing with 1-2 tablespoons of the juices left by the turkey in the pan. Grease the bird with a brush with 1/2 of this mixture, on the entire exposed surface, and continue to put in the oven. After 2-3 minutes, take the turkey out of the oven and grease it with the rest of the icing. Bake again for a maximum of 5 more minutes, until the icing is caramelized and browned according to our preferences.
3. Once ready, transfer the turkey to a plate and let it rest before serving for at least 30 minutes, even an hour would not be long. During this time, the meat will be impregnated with the juices it has released, becoming more juicy and tender.
Baked whole turkey with quince, serving
The turkey is served hot, along with your favorite garnish. We chose a mashed potato, but you can put with it any garnish you like, from potatoes with rosemary to ripe roots, sauteed or steamed vegetables, etc. Don't forget the ripe quinces inside the turkey, they will be delicious with the steak!
