Quince syrup recipe
We need two ingredients:
- quince fruit
For this you also need a large jar.
We wash the fruit, cut it into four parts, hollow stones and seed nests. Cut into cubes. If we received a glass of fruit, we measure out a glass of sugar (we need sugar to fruit in a 1: 1 ratio, i.e. for 1kg of quinces, 1 kg of sugar, for 2k quinces, 2 kilograms of sugar, etc.).
We put the fruit in layers in a jar, sprinkling with sugar (fruit layer, sugar layer) until we fill the whole jar. Let stand for two days, occasionally moving the jar to mix sugar.
After this time, we can pour the quince syrup itself into the jars (or together with the fruit) and consume it on a regular basis (storing it in the fridge) or pasteurize for about 10 minutes - thanks to which we will be able to store it for several years.
