Lazy Quince Sauce.
ANYONE WHO'S ATTEMPTED TO bake with quince knows the knobby, rock-hard fruit isn't easy on the home cook. But there's a delicious way to enjoy it with less labor-intensive peeling and coring: Simmer whole quinces in a covered saucepan with about 1 in. water until a knife slides right in, about 50 minutes. Quarter fruit, core, and slip off peels. Puree flesh in a food processor, adding the cooking liquid plus enough water for a looser texture. Then add a squeeze of lemon and a little sugar to heighten the flavor. Enjoy it by the bowlful, or spooned over pork chops.
