Nature is spectacular during this period and I don’t know how she managed to match her fruits with the colors she painted. Quinces, pumpkin, pears have beautiful colors, flavors, and unique scent.

The quince season has started and with them, the housewives start preparing the best quince jam recipes. Flavored and extremely tasty, quinces can be prepared in a lot of ways.

Quinces have a valuable content of vitamins and minerals (B1, B3, B6, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulfur, pectins, enzymes, etc.), do not have many calories (about 60 calories per 100 grams), and bring the body many benefits whether consumed raw or in the form of jams or juices, infusions or quince jelly.

I don’t know if it happens to you that the homemade jams, stay with you from year to year. I eat the first ones with strawberries and apricots, then the cherry jam and the blueberry jam – used in pancakes, or on bread with butter.

2)  Cut the quinces into cubes.

3)  Boil the apple juice until it is reduced by half.

4)  Put the stalks in a pot of water as long as they are covered to boil for an hour, and if necessary add a little more water.

5)  When it has halved, add the quinces over the apple juice and stir continuously.

6)  Strain the juice obtained from the stalks (which is rich in pectin and will bind the jam) pour it over the diced quinces, add finely crushed walnuts, vanilla essence, cinnamon, cloves, and the juice of the 2nd lemon, and simmer for about an hour until soft.

7)  Put the jam in previously sterilized jars.

8)  Put the jars with quince jam, nuts, and sugar-free cloves with the lid down and leave them like this overnight.
