You'd never guess from the floral flavor of rose-colored quince jelly that raw quince is quite tart. The jelly is finished with star anise for a hint of licorice, a classic pairing. Serve this with our Chicken-Liver Crostini.
This spiced pumpkin cake is enhanced by layers of a delectably rich frosting that features cream cheese and goat cheese. Quince, available in the fall, has a fragrant, apple-like flavor. If you can't find fresh ones, use pears or apples instead.
We brined our turkey for 24 hours, so leave plenty of time. If you don't want to brine yours, skip steps 1 and 2. If you don't have a stockpot large enough to hold the turkey and brine, use a clean, extra-large cooler.
