    • 500g quince, peeled, cored and finely diced
    • 1/2 lemon, juiced

    • 1/2 cup (125g) sugar

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Place the quince, lemon juice and water in a saucepan then bring to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
    2. Add the apples and simmer for a further 10-15 minutes until the fruit is very soft. Remove from the stove and pass through a sieve.
    3. Warm the jam jars in the oven.
    4. Add the fruit pulp back to the saucepan and heat again stirring constantly. Pour it straight into the warm, sterilised jars and seal.
    5. Place a tea towel in a deep saucepan, place the jars on it and cover with water. Simmer for 5 minutes. Store the jars in a cool place.


    While you are peeling and dicing the quince place it in a large bowl filled with water and the juice of 1 lemon. This prevents the quince from discolouring.

    Not too sweet ... delicate flavour ... I also put sugar in first boiling and I'm choosing to freeze rather than bottle.  -  20 Mar 2016
