Quince Paste by Julie Goodwin

I love a bit of quince paste on a cheese platter. These hard, pear-like fruits are in season now. If you’ve never tried cooking with them before, this is a nice simple recipe to try.
4 quinces, cored and cut into 3cm pieces.(Skin on)
White sugar (equal to the quince)
Place the chopped quinces in a pot and just cover with water. Simmer for 45 minutes or until soft.
Using a hand-held stick mixer, puree the quince until completely smooth. Measure the puree (it will be around 5 cups) and measure out an equal amount of white sugar.
Place the puree and the sugar in the bowl of a slow cooker and set to the high setting. Cook for 6 hours.
The quince will become a beautiful ruby colour and be quite stretchy and thick.
Pour into a square baking dish lined with cling wrap and set in the fridge overnight.
Cut into squares and store in the fridge wrapped in cling wrap.
