Quince paste is delicious on its own or with cheese. I like to cut some of it into shapes and rolled them into caster sugar. They really look the part and make cute snacks.
You can prepare quince paste on its own but I like to make it with Quince Jelly. No waste here!
In this recipe the quantity of sugar does vary. The general rule of thumb is to weigh how much paste you have and add the same weight in sugar.
Quinces might be a little hard to come by. Look out for them at your local farmers market or ethnic shop (I bought mines from TFC). They are well worth the trouble!
