Quince jam


There were beautiful Quinces in the shop

perfect for wonderful tasting jam.

They were extremely hard to cut  – all worth it in the end.

The jam came out so good, tasting and smelling so yummy.

This is my favourite jam followed by Apricot jam.


Have you ever made it or tasted it?

Quince Jelly is amazing too.

  1. I don’t think I have ever tasted quince jam but yours looks gorgeous! I think my favourite jam is fig and I am reminded that I have not had it for ages – must get some.. 🙂

  2. Wie lecker. Das ist auch meine Lieblingsmarmelade. Man bekommt sie hier sehr selten, es gibt nur Quittengelee. Einmal habe ich sie auch selbst bekocht, aber das ist wirklich harte Arbeit.

    • Ja Ute, es it harte Arbeit, meine Mutter machte immer Gelee und es war so lecker. Ich mag einfach den Geschmack von Quitten so sehr. Ich habe keinen Entsafter hier, also gibt es Marmelade! Danke fuer deinen Kommetnar!

  3. We have absolutely had quince jam at our house. Steffi and I collected the smaller “decorative” variety and made a very tart, lemony jam from them. When we’re looking for a lemony, tart taste in our food, we use the quince jam instead – even with the sugar we put in they’re still quite tart.
    They are a dickens to work with, aren’t they?
    Maybe I’ll first boil mine a bit next time – soften them up a bit.
    Looks like you’ve got enough to get you through 2019 there! Enjoy!

    • Haha, yes it was 2 kilos. I am giving some away as presents as it is quite rare here! They are hard to work with but the taste in the end is worth it! Hope you and Steffi are enjoying the Advent time! ♥

  4. I’ve never heard of it let alone tried it. Homemade, it’s probably so much better even. Wish they would invent tasting/smelling through computers.

  5. Oh, we’ve never tasted quinces, Ute, but our neighbor has them in the garden. We’re going to ask him for one so that we know how they taste. Thanks for the tip 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Day to you and Thomas🐾😽💞

  6. Früher habe ich sehr oft Quittengelee hergestellt. Da hatte ich noch eine Nachbarin mit Quittenbaum. Jetzt bekomme ich jedes Jahr von meiner Freundin ein Glas geschenkt. Oder muss welches kaufen. Ich liebe den Geschmack und den Duft von Quitten .

Love to hear from you......
