Quince Preserves in Syrup
I love to make Quince Preserves in Syrup in Fall and I place them in pretty jars, ready to give to friends as a gift around the holidays. I use different styles of slicing – sometimes I julienne the quince or I cut the fruit into half crescents or simple small chunks. Any shape will work so long as it is no thicker than a quarter of an inch.
As I chop, I drop the pieces into a large bowl of acid water (1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a large bowl of water). Cut quince will discolor quickly if left exposed to the air. Placing it in acidic water will retain the quince’s natural color.
