Ingredients

  • 2 quinces skin on, sliced or cut into very small cubes
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 2 - 2 1/2 cup water
  • Walnuts optional

Instructions

  1. Cook quince and water (water should cover quince) in a large pan until it starts simmering.
  2. Add sugar and bring it to simmer. Put the lid on.
  3. Turn the heat down and let it simmer on low heat with the lid on for 4 hours until the color is dark red. Check every 30 minutes to make sure it has enough water, if water is not enough, add 1/2 cup more water.
  4. When the jam reaches desired color and consistency, turn the heat off and let it cool with the lid on.
  5. If desired, add walnuts after the jam is cool.

Recipe Notes

Having the lid on while cooking gives great color to the jam.
