Now I'm not totally sure I can still call it a Hummingbird cake if there is no pineapple. Probably not but its still delicious and this is my recipe for our annual ode to this family favourite.
COOKING AND GARDENING
Loads of people have asked me for recipes to use with the sun-dried quince. My most common response is that its a perfect companion with cheese on a platter. This is certainly the season. I especially like it with a hard goat's cheese (Barossa Cheese LaDame is my total favourite).
However I have gone all out and included three recipes below for you to try, enjoy and please give me feedback.
Let's face it you don't need a recipe for a platter, well I don't think so. Some say it's a whole sensory experience- that is probably true. I often don't get much chance to plan a platter, beyond making sure I have our figs, pecans, quince and a range of other local produce in the fridge and pantry.
