The question mark is because I ain’t so sure. It has a lovely flavor and a beautiful color, but I don’t think it’s going to set. Quinces have lots of pectin and usually don’t have any problem setting firm, but I think I cooked it in too much water. As I boiled it, it just didn’t thicken properly

The internet helpfully suggests I use it for sugar syrup. If I don’t want to boil it again. And I don’t.

Yes, you can see it in color.

Maybe add some liquid pectin? Or cut it with some vodka to make quince liqueur. Or on pancakes?

Mix it with Polish Vodka.

No! not furniture polish vodka!

Quince pancake syrup! I bet it is delicious.
Does Uncle Badger like pound cake, pancakes, biscuits, or corn bread?

Zis a test to see if Uncle B is really a Murican?


I mean, what decent Murican doesn’t like biscuits or corn bread? To say nothing of pancakes and (OMG) pound cake!

Stoaty…I had the same issue with a batch of orange marmalade…it set up a little in the fridge so we poured it over vanilla ice cream, pancakes, waffles and rice pudding.

Deborah’s on to something…Quince would be really, really nice poured over a warm pound cake…let it soak and get happy. Yum.

Oh, you could use it as a baste for roast pork too…the cracklin’s would be divoon.

I’m not a gin drinker…do the flavors work?
