Marmelada – Portuguese Quince Jam

Marmelada is forever my favorite jam. My grandmother used to make it when I was little. Somehow my mum never made it when we moved to Switzerland (I forgive you mum). So now it's my turn to keep up with the tradition - no excuses! I can't wait to serve my marmelada to my family when they'll be over for Christmas. I specially love quince jam with cheese, thank god I live in Switzerland. Bom proveito!

For 8-10 jam jars

1 kg quinces

100 ml water

800 g brown sugar

200 g white sugar

  1. Peel the quinces and cut them into pieces.

  2. Join the quinces, water and sugar together and cook over a low fire for about 30 minutes.

  3. Blend and put aside for cooling off.

  4. Fill up your favorite jam jar and done!
