Spiced Winter Fruit

Submitted by: CMCRISWELL

Introduction

Topped with low-fat vanilla ice cream, this also makes a simple elegant holiday dessert. Quince, which is in season in the winter months, is a yellow-skinned fruit that looks and tastes like a cross between an apple and a pear but turns pink when cooked; cooking mellows the tartness. (If you can't find quince, just use 2 additional apples or pears cut into wedges.) Topped with low-fat vanilla ice cream, this also makes a simple elegant holiday dessert.
