Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
I have just moved to a new house, and new country, and am blessed with a number of fruit/nut trees, one being a lovely good sized quince, have tried a number of recipes and this one is the simplest I have come across and easily competes with the rest. Thank You. as an added bonus most of the local comunity do not realise the many uses of this fruit for food and as a herbal remedy, always good to bring somthing new to the table, Thank you again

This was outstanding! I was so excited to see this recipe on here, because I’m crazy about quince. The first time I tried them, I thought, “Where has this fruit been all my life?!” I think I added too much water, though, during the quince cooking stage. Next time I’ll add a couple of cups to start with, and add more if needed. From 4½ pounds of whole quince, I got more than 5 lbs of quince puree! Like I said: too much water. It took a long time to cook down. I spread it into a pan and left it in a 100 degree F oven overnight (we have a “bread proof” cycle that was perfect for this). Wonderful! As good as the membrillo we had in Portugual. Perfect with crusty bread and slices of manchego cheese. It made a ton, so I'm giving away slabs as gifts to a select few!

While preparing another quince recipe I discovered what a royal PITA it is to core and peel quince. So... when I looked at this recipe I decided to invert it. I halved the quinces, put them in a pot and barely covered them with water. Cooked for 40 mins or so until they were soft. Then I scooped them out with a slotted spoon and ran them through a food mill/ fruit and vege strainer aka the thing with the auger and screen that separates flesh from seeds and skins. I strained the liquid that remained and returned it to the pan and reheated it to dissolve the sugar. Remixed it all hot and was left with something the consistency of applesauce. The only thing I had to watch was that the volume of seeds can jam the auger so I had to clear it once. Huge time saver over peeling first, plus less waste.

This recipe was so easy! Someone at work brought some quinces in and didn't know what they were. He stated his grandmother used them all time when he was kid. So I make this paste and served it crackers, brie, cheddar cheese and it was the talk on the whole floor. The only problem it call for a lot of sugar. Next time I want to try stevia or splenida. Thanks for sharing.

This was so good! We ate it as a little sweet treat with meals. It was good alone or on toast. Great recipe!
