Homemade Quince Jam

Quince is under appreciated here in the US, but this easy to make and aromatic ruby red quince jam will soon make you a quince lover out of  you!

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: • Quince • Sugar • Lemon Juice

Wash, core and carefully cut quince into small or large chunks, whichever you prefer. Quince is very hard so pay extra attention as you try to cut it.

As you chop your quince, keep it in a bowl covered with water and lemon juice to keep it from browning.

Drain quince and add to a large stainless or copper pot along with water, sugar and lemon juice. Bring mixture to boil.

Once boiled, cover lid with a towel, to catch steam, and reduce heat to low and simmer until quince changes color.

Color will change from light pink to dark red. This takes about 2 hours. 

Stir every 30 minutes to keep from burning. Add water, as needed.

When fruit is fork tender and red in color, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
