And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, they danced by the light of the moon."
I've been wanting to make my own quince jelly for awhile now. I've seen recipes on other blogs and websites, and more often now while they are in season -it cooks up beautifully in taste and color. I have seen quince jelly at farmers markets and specialty grocery stores, and there are several recipes in Mes Confitures that I thought I might try. To look at, quince (a quince? Quinces? Quincees? ;) ) looks like a cross between a lemon and a pear and is about the size of a pomegranate. They are bright yellow on the outside, but inside the flesh color is similar to that of a pear.
Go to this web link for the recipe I adapted. I used 2 pounds of quince (3 quince, cored) and 1 pound of Red Bartlett pears (4 pears, stemmed, cored)...yummy! xo, AB
