Quince jelly

For a litre of juice, (assuming you only just covered the quinces with water, no more)

500 g of sugar

Bring the juice and sugar slowly to the boil and reduce to at least 1/3 of the volume, boiling slowly and monitoring the process.

You will know it is ready when

  • the colour turns from gold to reddish
  • you take some of the juice with a tablespoon and is flows as if a little syrupy string almost yielding drops at the end
  • put the jelly in jars and let it cool and set
