Quince Paste


Print:
4

Ingredients

1000 g

Quince Paste

  • 4 quinces, fur/down rubbed off and roughly chopped (weigh and make a note, no more than 1 kg)
  • 1 lemon, flesh and pips only
  • 80 g water
  • 750 g sugar, approx
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Chop in two batches 10 seconds Speed 6 with lemon.

     

  2. Place all chopped quince mixture into TM bowl, add water, scrape sides of bowl, wash and dry lid and MC. Cook 30 minutes 100 degrees Speed 3 until perfumed aromas are present.

     

  3. Carefully turn dial up to Speed 6-7 and pulverise 20 - 30 seconds until desired texture is reached and all pips etc are finely chopped.

     

  4. Add sugar (approximately 75% of raw quince weight) ie 750g sugar if there was 1kg quince placed into bowl at the start.

    Combine on Speed 3 for 5 - 10 seconds, scrape down sides of bowl and rinse lid to remove sugar particles.

     

  5. Insert Butterfly, with MC off, place Varoma (bowl part only with no lid on will allow steam to escape and reduce splatter) cook 30 - 45 minutes at Varoma temperature (115 degrees for Model 5) Speed 2 until desired colour, texture and moistness is reached. Cook another 10 - 15 minutes if required.

     

    Using the Butterfly increases the rate of evaporation and reduces the chance of it sticking.

    If you remove the Varoma/TM Lid a few times and shake the water off  you will get rid of the moisture much more efficiently and reduce the cooking time.

     

  6. Quickly scrape into containers of choice to cool/dry out. Shallow tray/molds lined with greaseproof paper (paste depth is usually 1-2 cm), no lining required if using silicone bakeware, small tubs or jars will also work well.

     

  7. Air dry mixture in a warm place (kitchen bench top, sunny window, mantelpiece etc) for as long as required (time will depend on residual moisture) or in a low oven.

     

    Store in an airtight container - keeps a year if not contaminated.

Tip

New quinces that have greenish tinges on the skin improve pectin set as does using the skin, cores and pips. After pulverising, texture will be good with a little “grittiness”.

Lemon juice assists with colour change to ruby red, if your lemon is small or "dry", add extra juice or flesh of another lemon.

Test set on a cold (refrigerated) saucer. Raw quince moisture level and amount of pectin present will influence time to cook and dry.

Un-pulverised “bits” will be captured in the butterfly as it stirs through in the last cook.

To utilise bowl residue, don’t wash, make custard or poach some quinces in the basket or make quince jelly.

Excellent served with game or as part of a gravy/glaze or on a cheese board or add a small piece to Thermomix Custard for a delicious flavour boost.

I make mine in small 50g disposable containers and take them to friends as a dinner party gift.

Cost is about $7 for 1000g vs $5 for 100g in the shops!

    I've never used quince before, but this recipe was fantastic. Very easy to follow and tastes great. One batch made 15 small pots (aboit the same size you buy for too much money!). On my second batch today. Yum.

  • Why do I struggle to get a

    Submitted by Notradaya on 1. October 2016 - 20:27.

    Why do I struggle to get a nice deep red color!? My first batch made on the stove top last year was pale, 2nd batch was perfect, and I haven't been able to recreate the success since then! I've tried another thermie recipe this year and loved the flavor but again was pale, now hoping this one would work bc it was so simple but the longer it cooks the harder and more rubbery it goes! What am I doing wrong? Does the age of the quince matter? 

     

    Edited1/10/16. I've been working my way they the two batches of quince paste I made last year, one of which was this recipe. Unfortunately I've chucked the majority of this batch out and wont be trying it again., The gritty bits were actually really bad, my MIL cracked her tooth on it and I've nearly done it a few times myself, and I'm a dentist, so i know this dangerous territory. I don't know if it was my quince that I used or if the thermomix just couldn't get it blitzed fine enough, but even the tiniest bit of grit from this batch is enough to worry me. I'll stick to recipes that remove the pips and cores before blitzing. Flavor is lovely though, and I did get a beautiful deep color in the end by cooking a bit longer.

    Submitted by Sharon.thermomix on 10. August 2016 - 15:46.

    Thank Alison...appreciate your input and happy that your having success! 

    The little tubs are from a food packaging supplies shop and the paste just pops out really cleanly with  a nice gloss on the underside. I've has some in the fridge for over a year stores this way (as long as everything is super clean). I've also seen them online however you might need to split the order with girlfriends. Base and lid are sold separately and I use the 50ml capacity as it seen as to be the "right" size. Happy Cooking!

    Submitted by AMG86 on 10. August 2016 - 15:20.

    PS Sharon - the little disposable cups are a brilliant idea! May i ask where you got them?? Does the paste pop out of them easily, or do you just cut a bit out of the cup each time you add it to a bikkie? I sliced mine up and vacuum wrapped them, but i like that cup idea! Thanks for publishing this recipe, its great!

  • In response to Rebecca's

    Submitted by AMG86 on 10. August 2016 - 15:16.

    In response to Rebecca's comment - And yet i've made this recipe and it was perfect, and Tenina's didnt work for me. There are so many variables - the quality of the fruit, the chef's ability and adherence to the steps etc. Not really the author of the recipes fault if it didnt work for you. In my experience, giving it another go might be worth a try. Similarly, getting frustrated and chucking the whole lot out is a bit silly - to get a deeper colour, especially from fruit that is of questionable quality, cooking it down for a bit longer works a treat.

    Also, google is a good asset - i've googled 'thickening quince paste" etc, not particularly brainy questions, and thats where i found all sorts of info on how to cook it further for better results.

  • I have been making quince

    Submitted by Rebecca on 11. July 2016 - 10:43.

    I have been making quince paste every winter since I got my TM 5 years ago. I have always used Tenina's recipe. Today I thought I'd give this one a go and it was a complete failure. It is thick and gluggy, really really gritty, gave me error messages on my machine, didn't change that gorgeous red colour I am use to. The entire batch has gone in the garbage. I am so annoyed because I won't be able to buy quinces in Central Queensland now until next year. Stick to Tenina's recipe peeps. It's a huge thumbs down for me. Really really annoyed right now to be honest.

  • This was excellent, one batch

    Submitted by Michele_L on 25. April 2016 - 20:29.

    This was excellent, one batch made enough to fill in a tupperware slice form, plus several silicon cupcake moulds.  It peeled out of all those really smoothly.  Afterwards we made custard with the residue in the bowl (as suggested in the tips) and that had a lovely quince flavour diffused throughout.

    Submitted by Maida on 2. April 2016 - 19:21.

    Very easy to make and although not as dark as yours the colour is very good. For me a little sweet but I guess it has to be. The cheese will tone it down. Such a great idea to poach quinces afterwards. I'm doing that right now. Thanks so much for your recipe and tips.  Love

  • I'm no expert but I believe

    Submitted by Sharon.thermomix on 20. August 2015 - 22:47.

    I'm no expert but I believe it's something to do with the acidity of the cooking liquid that releases the hidden red colours when heated in a sugary environment. My lemons come from my Meyer tree and are quite large (as its in fruit in winter) so there is probably a good 40g of juice per batch. Maybe add some extra juice next time - and I'll make a note in the tips now that I've found this out!  tmrc_emoticons.)

    I love how easy this recipe is and tastes great but I keep having c160 error come up and my machine shutting down. Has anyone else sxperienced this? Only seems to happen when cooking this. Although it did happen last night cooking the chorizo pasta from the green book. Hasn't done it cooking that in the past.
