Fried Quinces, in the Manner of the Countess

Recipe by  

"According to lore, this recipe finds its origins in the cookbook of one Philippina Welser, authored in 1545 in Augsburg, Germany. The 20-year-old woman, a commoner, placed her cookbook in her dowry when she married Archduke Ferdinand Hapsburg of Austria, Governor of Bohemia in 1557 in a secret ceremony. "

Directions

  1. Heat the clarified butter in a skillet over low heat, and place the quince wedges into the pan. Cover, then gently cook the quince wedges until softened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Mix the flour, white sugar, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the beer with the vanilla extract and lemon zest; gradually mix the flour mixture into the beer mixture until it becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, dip the quince wedges into the batter and place them in the hot oil; fry in batches until golden brown. Remove fried quinces to a warm platter while you finish frying. Sprinkle the fried quinces with demerara sugar to serve.

I tried this but did not have beer so I used Rum :-) It came out pretty good. I actually squeezed the lemon in the mixture instead of zesting. It came out pretty sweet and yummy. Tasted like cooked pears I guess and seems like it would really go well with vanilla ice cream.
