  • 1 kg quinces without seeds and casing
  • 200 ml water
  • ¹⁄₂ lemon
  • 1 kg sugar


  • Wash the quinces and dry them with a cloth.
  • Cut out the core.
  • Make sure to remove all the seeds, as they contain toxic prussic acid.
  • Cut the flesh into pieces.
  • Place in a saucepan.
  • Cover with water and bring to a boil.
  • Cook over reduced heat until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Puree with a hand blender.
  • Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar, mix well.
  • Bring the whole thing to a boil again.
  • Cook the jam over low heat for about 30 minutes.
  • Stir regularly during this process.
  • In the meantime, sterilize the preserving jars so that the jam lasts as long as possible.
  • Fill the jars with the hot jam and seal.
  • Place upside down on a blanket, wrap and let cool:
  • This creates a vacuum and the quince jam will keep for a long time.


Store the quince jam in a cool place.
