Make your own quince paste to go with your next cheese platter 🙂

  • Prep: 45 mins
  • Cook: 12 hrs
  • Yields: 4 jars


1.4kg Diced Quince skin with fur on (contains natural pectins) and core removed

700g White Sugar - its half the weight or fruit in total if you are increasing the recipe

1/2 cup water


1Place all ingredients in a stove top pot and cook for about 30 mins on a medium to high heat until tender.

2Transfer to a blender and blitz (the more you blitz the smoother the paste will be).

3Transfer into a slow cooker and place on low with a tea towel under the lid and cook for up to 12 hours stirring every hour or so.

4#Please Note: The cooking time will depend on your slow cooker keep an eye on the colour my little slow cooker runs hot so was done in 7 hours.

This recipe has the advantage over many in that it is very simple and correct. The tea towel is I guess to absorb released steam. I think towards the last two hours leaving the lid off might have the same effect of drying the paste out a little.
