Jam/Jelly. Chris. 24/10/2001.
Does anyone have a recipe for quince jam or jelly?
Here are the recipes I use:
2lbs Quinces, prepared weight
1 1/2 pints water
2 tbspns Lemon Juice
3lbs Granulated or preserving sugar
Peel, core, slice and weigh quinces. Place in pan with the water and lemon juice, then simmer very gently with the lid on until really soft and mushy. Reduce a little if needed by boiling with lid off. Add the sugar and stir well until dissolved, then boil rapidly until setting point is reached. Pot and cover in usual way.
water to just cover
3 tbspns lemon juice
Silver Spoon Jam Sugar
Wash quinces then cut up into small pieces, no need to peel or core, but cut out any bad pieces. Simmer, without lid until fruit is really mushy (about 1/2 hr - 1 hr).
Strain overnight through muslin into a bowl, then measure back into washed pan. For every pint of juice add 1lb Jam Sugar and stir over very low heat until dissolved. Bring to rolling boil and boil for 4 MINS ONLY. Pot in usual way.
Thanks a lot Jean, much appreciated
