  • Rub and clean quinces well with a rough towel.
  • Cut the bumps from one end so they will sit in a pan.
  • Place the whole quinces in the pan with the water and the half cup of sugar. Put the lid on and boil gently for an hour and a half to two hours, until the quinces are a light pink.
  • Carefully lift the quinces out onto a plate (Maggie suggests using an egg slice) and discard the core.
  • Chop the rest of the quince roughly and return to the juice.
  • Measure pulp and allow one cup of sugar to one cup of pulp.
  • Heat slowly, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then boil rapidly for 20-30 minutes or until jam gels when tested.
