Today I want to share with you another recipe. The cheff is my mother, who has made quince paste! And she took the pictures too ;-P
Quince paste is a delicious dessert if you eat it with cheese, or you can eat it with bread any time of the day when hunger attacks. Typically, the quince is also used to make quince marzipan.

The recipe:

With 10 or 12 quince fruit you can do about 2 kg of quince paste.
The most difficult work is to peel and slice the quinces because this fruit is very hard, a lot!

Once peeled and cut as the picture shows, we have to weigh the quince. For every kilo of cut quince add ¾kg of sugar and a little cup of water.
Mix it all with a spoon and boil it. When it starts boiling, low the fire and let it cook for 1 hour and 45 minutes exactly.

After this time we will have the characteristic red color of quince.

With the mixer pulverize it until it is thick and grainy. Put it into molds and let it cool completely.

The quince paste can be freeze to conserve it, covered with plastic wrap.

That's it. I hope you enjoyed it  ;)
