    About this recipe: This fruity paste is a great addition to any cheese board. The floral sweetness of quince goes particularly well with stronger cheeses and, of course, the traditional pairing of manchego. Try it at your next dinner party.

    Serves: 12 

    • 2L water
    • 2kg quince, unpeeled and chopped
    • 1.5kg caster sugar

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Extra time:6days drying  ›  Ready in:6days55min 

    1. Bring the water to the boil in a large saucepan and add the chunks of quince. Cook for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and mash with a fork.
    2. Put the mashed quince back in the pan with the sugar. Cook for 15 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved. The paste should easily come off from the sides of the pan.
    3. Pour the mixture out onto a tray lined with baking parchment and leave to dry for several days. When dry on one side, turn over to dry on the other side.
    4. Once dry, cut the quince paste as desired. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
