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.  

To make Quince Preserves in Syrup, you will need the following ingredients:

Add cooking liquid

Use a ladle to spoon the cooking liquid over the fruit pieces. The quince should be completely covered by the syrup, but allow ½ an inch of head space between the fruit and the rims of the jars. Press the quince down with the back of a spoon to remove any air bubbles.
