Quince nectar and syrup
Photo by Tamara West
|4 large||Quinces, diced evenly, no need to remove skin or core|
|3 cups||Apple juice|
|2||Lemons, zest and juice|
- Add quinces to a large saucepan with apple juice, water, sugar and the lemon zest and juice.
- Bring to the boil, then simmer for 2 hours or until fruit is completely soft. Cool and chill.
- Strain the liquid from the pulp by passing it through a cheesecloth, squeezing gently. Chill and drink.
- To turn the nectar into a syrup, gently reduce 3 cups of nectar to make 1 cup syrup. Jar and store in the fridge. Pour on to pancakes, or mix with soda water (and gin) for a refreshing drink.
