1kg sugar
Juice from 1 lemon

Finely slice the quince and put them straight in a bowl with water and half the lemon juice as you are doing this so that they don’t blacken.

Drain the quince and put it in a pan with the 500ml water and the sugar.

Bring to the boil and continue boiling for another 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat, cover and leave for 24 hours.

After the 24 hours, bring to the boil again and continue until it has a syrupy consistency.
