Ingredients

2 litre(s)

Quince Paste

  • 1500 gram quinces
  • 800-1000 gram sugar, approximately
  • --- juice of 1 lemon
  • 600 grams water

Recipe's preparation

    Quince Paste
  1. Wash the quinces, then peel and core, reserving both.  Place the peel and cores into the TM bowl  and the 600gm of water, chop for 15 sec/speed 9, using the spatula to push the peel down, if necessary.

  2. Cut the quince flesh into 2cm chunks and place in the Varoma basket and tray.  Place the Varoma dish in position, and steam for 25 min/Varoma/speed 1.

  3. Remove the Varoma tray and set aside. Line the TM basket with cheescloth or nut milk bag or a clean new Chux cloth. Strain the peel and core mixture through this cloth into a separate bowl. Gather corniers of cloth and twist to  squeeze out as much liquid as possible.  Dispose of the pulp, clean the TM bowl and weigh the liquid and pieces of quince in the TM bowl.  Note the weight.  Blend for 10 sec/speed 5.

  4. Add about 2/3 of the weight of the steamed and blended quince in sugar to the TM bowl.  Mix for 5 sec/speed 9.  Add the lemon juice. Cook for 50 min/Varoma/speed 5/MC off and place the steamer basket on the top to cover the opening.

  5. Once cooked, allow the sticky mixture to cool for about 10 minutes, then pour it into a  tray 8"x10"  greased with oil or lined with baking paper or a Thermomat. Pour to the centre of tray and using a spatula carefully spread evenly to corners. 

  6. Allow the tray to cool before covering and storing in the fridge.  Once set, the paste can be cut into pieces and layered with baking paper or clingwrap in an airtight container.  It keeps for months in the fridge.

Tip

This recipe is less sweet than traditional quince paste recipes as it has less sugar added. The lemon juice adds to the piquancy and brings out the flavour of the quince. Enjoy!

    This is the bomb! I ended up with 1.4kg which I needed to add 2/3'rds sugar to. Almost didn't fit in the bowl, I put 850g instead of about 930g, as I seemed soooo much sugar. Next time I'll use a bit less again as it is quite sweet. I put mine in a Tupperware silicone slice form, turned out perfectly! Can't believe that for less than $1, quinces were free, that I made so much, and it is so good.

    Submitted by Betstrath on 4. April 2020 - 15:12.

    I didn't read the recipe properly and did the final mix on speed 1 instead of 5.
    Thought it looked a little runny but put in the fridge to see if it would set overnight. It didn't. So I cooked a quartered unpeeled and uncored apple in microwave for 1 minute. Poured the uncooked paste back in the Thermomix with the apple and cooked another 25 mins speed 5.
    I could tell it was ready as the colour was much darker and when I rubbed it between my fingers (carefully it's hot) it felt sticky. Perfect.

    Wow, perfect smooth paste. Two things I changed were: cooked on speed 3 (5 was far too fast for my TM5), poured the paste straight into the tray/containers as it set very fast. Great recipe

    This recipe didn't work for me, it ended up a very hard sticky mess and took forever to clean my bowl. I'm not sure if it was over cooked and turned more into a toffee

  • Thick and rubbery - happened

    Submitted by Fran432 on 4. May 2016 - 21:05.

    Thick and rubbery - happened to me too.  I am going to try again omitting the lemon juice - thinking as it is early in quince season they might be high in Pectin and not need it.  Shame cause it had to be thrown and it takes time!

  • My first attempt and all good

    Submitted by m-a on 1. May 2016 - 12:17.

    My first attempt and all good until the end when the paste set very quickly and dried to a very hard and rubbery consistency. Were my quinces perhaps not ripe enough and that plus the lemon juice produced too much pectin? Too late to save this batch but any other ideas on how to prevent this? 

    The silicon muffin trays worked really well by the way.

    This is a great recipe. I found it a little tricky to squeeze the liquid out when it was so hot - using tongs was the answer! Will definately make it again. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • OMG this is divine, not only

    Submitted by Ann at the seaside on 9. April 2016 - 00:30.

    OMG this is divine, not only in taste but also a stunning colour.  I've only licked scraps that have cooled down on the bowl, after pouring the mix into 11 x 120 ml pots. Can't wait to hear the comments when I give a few pots to the friend who gave me the quinces. I've made the apple and ginger paste and plum paste before,  but this is the stand out for flavor and so easy too. Thank you so much Sharon.

  • Excellent. Thank you.  I only

    Submitted by Tiny on 27. March 2016 - 18:12.

    Excellent. Thank you.  I only had 3 figs, so, roughly halved the recipe, worked out perfectly.  I also added a pinch of nutmeg.  I cannot believe I made this.  It is better than the bought  stuff. Great little gift too.   For those who have not made this, read through recipe first, whilst each step is easy to follow, it does require a fair bit of time, not to be started near bed time.  

    Great tip Lestel, next time I'll use muffin moulds.

  • This was my 2nd attempt at

    Submitted by Lestel on 23. May 2015 - 21:28.

    This was my 2nd attempt at Qunce Paste and my consultant recommended I try this recipe. It turned out beautifully - perfect consistency and texture - I think I will have to make more before the season finishes.

    Tip - I used a metal sieve and really pushed as much liquid out as possible with my spatula as I didn't have any cheesecloth. I then sieved again. This time around I had about twice as much liquid as previously and I think it made a huge difference to the consistency.

    Tip - I did pour most of the mixture into the tin as per the recipe but also tried some in a couple of silicon muffin moulds and they have set beautifully. Look very professional to serve up to guests!
