This is a wonderfully unusual jam that also be used a sauce. In combination with apples quince taste delicious going wonderfully with roast pork, turkey or duck.
500g quince, peeled, cored and finely diced
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 cups (500ml) water
500g apples, peeled, cored and finely diced
1/2 cup (125g) sugar
- Place the quince, lemon juice and water in a saucepan then bring to the boil and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
- 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.
- Warm the jam jars in the oven.
- Add the fruit pulp back to the saucepan and heat again stirring constantly. Pour it straight into the warm, sterilised jars and seal.
- 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.
At what point do you add the sugar..........it doesn't mention it! Unless I'm going mad...

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