      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh cut quinces into TM bowl and chop 10 seconds, Sp 7.


    Scrape down sides of bowl.Add sugar and lemon. Mix 10 sec Sp 5.


    Cook 40 mins, Varoma temperature, Sp 1.5 without MC, with simmer basket on top.


    Scrape bottom of bowl.


    Cook 20 minutes at 105 degrees C, Sp 1.5.


    Scrape base again, and repeat cooking for 20 mins, 105 degrees C, Sp1.5.


    Scrape base again, if very dark ruby red, the quince paste is cooked.


    If not cook a further 10 mins as above.


    When the desired colour is achieved place MC onto lid and puree for 5 seconds on speed 7. A slightly grainy texture is traditional.


    Pour and scrape the quince paste, using spatula into moulds or slab tray. Allow to cool and place in low oven 120 degrees C for an hour to set.


    When completely cold, wrap in baking paper and store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 6 moths. 


    After this time it tends to dry out a little but is still safe and edible for another 3 to 4 months.
