I’ve posted before the recipe of Quince confiture with passion fruit. The recipe, which I will share today, could be a classical one. There are only 2 ingredients in this confiture – quince and sugar, but it tastes divine.
- 1 kg quince
- 1 kg sugar
- ~ 175-200 ml water (if necessary)
- Thoroughly wash the quinces
- Quarter the quinces and cut each quarter into 0,5 icnh slices
- Put the slices into a bow and cover with sugar
- Mix well, cover and leave for 3 days (mix them gently once a day)
- Transfer the mixture into a deep pan, add water (only if your mixture is not liquid enough), stir and bring to the boil
- Immediately reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 1 hour at low heat (the surface should produce small bubbles)
- Take out one drop of the syrup, your confiture is ready if the drop is jellied
Thoughts and Ideas
I never have to add water, the quinces here are very fresh and juicy. The quince slices taste like candies. The longer you cook the confiture, the harder the quince. Who prefers soft fruits, can reduce the time of coking and add more water.
You can add a lemon rind, (blanched in water before), remove the rind after the confiture is ready.
