Step 2

Press cloves into each quince half. Place the fruit in a roasting pan cut-side down. Add the water, cinnamon sticks and sugar to the baking tray, sprinkle some sugar over the quince halves.

Step 3

Bake for 45-50 minutes until fruit starts changing color to red and the syrup in the baking tray thickens.
