Quince

Grating

Grating

Tansy, Constance and Patience brought a few quinces home from Read Island. A nice quince jam can be made by washing the fuzz off the fruit and grating them including the skin, but not the core. The core has a lot of brachysclerids so it has a gritty texture.

Grated Quince starts out yellow!  Six cups grated quince in 4 1/2 cups of water.

It ends up pink!  After the fruit is boiled soft, add 4 cups of sugar, and keep boiling till eventually jam is acheived…

  1. 20 jars and more to go?!! That is a lot of grating!!! And a lot of jam. I made some apple butter but only a few pints…nothing like the production line you have going. The girls look quite cozy eating jam on toast.

  2. Quince jam on toast with butter and a cup of hot tea – just delicious. The hittys must have been great little helpers !!
