Quince Paste

Recipe by Janine B?


• 4 quinces, washed, peeled and cored

• 1 cup water

• Juice of 1 lemon

• Raw Sugar


Cut quinces into chunks and place in TM Bowl with water, lemon juice, cores and pips.

Cook on 100° C until quince is quite tender. (This should take around 30minutes) Puree, speed 8 for 15-20 seconds. Push the mixture through a sieve and measure the weight of the pulp back into the TM Bowl. Note the weight of pureed quinces and add 3/4 of the quince amount in raw sugar and cook 100º C for about 45 minutes on Speed 1.

For a darker colour and a firmer consistency, continue to cook at Varoma speed 3. (Could be up to one hour, but start with 30minutes)

Pour into tray lined with Baking paper and store in fridge to set.

When set, cut into pieces and wrap in greaseproof paper and then foil. Keeps indefinitely.

    I have amended the method in this recipe to make it a little easier to follow. I normally pour this into a lined cookie sheet tray and use cookie cutters to cut into cute shapes when cut – they look gorgeous on a cheese platter. Alternatively if you have a loaf pan you can use that and then slice into pieces.

    Note – keep cooking this until you have a dark ruby red colour. Time can alter.
    Once you have poured it into the lined cookie sheet, Steph advised me to put it in the oven overnight at about 60 degrees till it is the right consistency.

    If you don’t cook this long enough and it is just an orange-yellow colour, it won’t set hard. Although it isn’t really quince paste as it’s more like a jam consistency, it’s PERFECT for spreading between sponge cakes!
