I have always loved the taste of quinces. Unfortunately, if one finds quinces in Belgium, people always made them very sweet with honey, or made jam with them. Now that is not really paleo.
But I recently discovered that they are delicious if you bake them in butter. Really great fresh, rosy and mildly sweet.
Here is the nutritional brakedown:
The average nutritional composition of quince fruit is (per 100g edible portion): Water 83.8% Vitamin A 40 IU Protein 0.4 g Vitamin B1 (thiamin) 0.02 mg Fat 0.1 g Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 0.03 mg Carbohydrate 15.3 g Vitamin C 15-20 mg Calcium 11 mg Phosphorus 17 mg Iron 0.7 mg Potassium 197 mg Sodium 4 mg
How does this compare to more conventional fruits like apple, pear, ...
(Note that this is a nerdy question, and that I will enjoy quinces now and then (if I can find them), no mather what the nutritional profile is)
