Quince jam, commonly known as marmalade, is one of the most traditional and popular jams used in the Iberian Peninsula.
It may be used for spreading on bread, or to eat along cheese, also known as Romeo & Juliet.
For this Marmelade Recipe you will need:
1 Kg of Quinces
Wash the quinces, cut them into cubes and remove the lumps.
In a copper pan cook them with some water. Drain the quinces and with the help of a food mill reduce them to puree. Weight the puree and add the same amount of sugar.
Take it to the fire, always stirring, and let it boil for 15 minutes.
Pour into bowls and expose them to the sun for 1-2 weeks. After that time, brush some tracing paper with brandy, cut it with the bowl's diameter and cover the marmalade.
