Ingredients
 

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • Place all ingredients in a stove top pot and cook for about 30 mins on a medium to high heat until tender.
  • Transfer to a blender and blitz (the more you blitz the smoother the paste will be).
  • Transfer 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.
  • #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.

  1. 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.
