Quince Preserves
(Kythoni Glyko)
What You Need:
  • 1 pound quince
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • How To Cook:
    1. Peel and core the quince. Reserve the seeds and place them in a cheesecloth bag. Tie securely and set aside.

    2. Grate quince flesh on a coarse grater or in a food processor. Place grated quince in saucepan with sugar, water, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.

    3. Add cheesecloth bag. Simmer for about 1 hour, or until syrup thickens to the consistency of honey. Stir at intervals and skim off scum that rises to top while cooking.

    4. Add lemon juice at the end of cooking time to prevent syrup from crystallizing. Continue to simmer until glassy and jellylike.

    5. Discard cheesecloth bag of seeds, cinnamon sticks, an cloves. Spoon into sterilized jars, cool, and refrigerate.

        Preserves can be used in a tart and cake.
    To Make: four 8-Ounce jars
