Preparation of quince jam: the recipe

  1. Wash the quinces thoroughly under cold running water to remove all the fluff . Cut the pulp into small pieces by removing the cores but without depriving the apples of the peel.
  2. In a bowl of water to which you have added lemon juice, pour the apples to prevent them from blackening.
  3. After draining the apples, transfer them to a saucepan, add the sugar and cook for 30 minutes over low heat . During cooking, remember to mix the jam with a wooden spoon to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. The temperature to be reached is 180 degrees: help yourself with a thermometer.
  4. Once ready, transfer the quince jam into sterilized glass jars and close them tightly. Turn the jars upside down, check that the vacuum has been created and let them cool completely before placing them in the pantry.
