Quince jelly

« Quinces are unusual because they are only edible when they are cooked. When used to make jam, and in particular to make jelly, they reveal their true taste; tender, strong and sweet.
They are often used in cooking, sautéed in butter, as a sweet-sour accompaniment for poultry and pork, as well as for fresh foie gras. A little-known fruit that merits a better position in the world of gastronomy. »

  • Cover fruit with 2qt (2l) cold water and cook in a large pot over low heat for 30 to 40 min, until they are well-cooked and completely soft.
  • Pour all into a very fine strainer, let the juice drain naturally (without pushing on fruit) into a recipient placed below.
  • Be patient, this operation can take 3 to 4 hours…
  • Weigh the juice obtained and place the equivalent weight of granulated sugar in a bowl.
  • Mix juice with sugar and lemon juice in a jam pot and cook over low heat while stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Next, bring it to a boil over high heat and let it cook for 10 min, remove foam and continue stirring until the jelly takes.

Like apricots, quinces combine very well with spices and citrus fruit.
If you would like to flavor the quince jelly, add a zest from an orange or lemon and 2 cinnamon sticks during the first cooking of the fruit.
