jam recipes by Steven Ripple

posted on 11/17/2010 "A friend gives me quinces every year from her families tree. They are one of those forgotten fruits. I think they are not popular because they are inedible raw. But they are very fragrant, and delicious. They are great in sweet and savory dishes both. They also make great potpourri additions or put into a decorative fruit display add a wonderful aroma to the air. They smell of apples and pineapples, and apple blossoms. This is one I made up from a basic quince jam recipe. Very few ingredients. Could be made without Habaneros - but the combination is really great."

Don't skip the acids or sugars or it will not thicken and could even be dangerous and prone to spoilage."

It's a quick addition to a cheese plate. It can be a filling for crepes or pastries too. It could be used as a basis of a relish or chutney too."
