Quince ideas

muimi07 | | Sep 24, 2009 09:52 PM

A friend of mine has an old quince tree in her backyard. She's tried a few recipes and been unhappy with the results so this year, she decided to give away the quince. She knows I'm up to experimentation so now I've got a paper bag with a good 10lbs of quince!

I looked up some recipes and am finding mostly jams, jellies and the like. I'm definitely going to make some membrillo but am at a loss for what else to do with the darned stuff. I would hate for this stuff to go to waste but I am also not willing to invest in canning equipment just to make some jelly or jam. Is it possible to make some jam without canning it?

Any ideas for this old fruit would be greatly appreciated!
