Quince with Star Anise on Sticky Rice Recipe

Marmalade was originally made from quinces. Quinces are too tart to eat raw but when cooked with sugar and other aromatics they take on a beautiful flavour and perfume – a mix of apple and pear. Baked quinces are an incredibly easy dessert for a group of friends.
