When we traveled north to Portland a couple of years ago, we found a lovely small farm that had beautifully fragrant quince fruit. When we came home, we searched and found another small farm with perfect quince.
Golden quince are amazingly fragrant when ripe. So we let our fruits sit and ripen for a few weeks before we cooked them into quince jelly. A long process, the fruits are cooked and then pureed and we save the gorgeous, floral scented syrup for jelly.
This jelly is a delicate pale color with a sweet scent and all the flavor of floral quince inside. It's perfect with many cheeses and makes an excellent addition to your holiday cheese platters.
