It's quince season, so here it is another recipe, this time a traditional Portuguese Marmalade Recipe.
Marmalade or "Marmelada", as it is called in Portugal is a puree of quince cooked with sugar in equal parts with the aim of preserving it. It is a specialty of Portuguese regional sweets, being the most famous made in Odivelas in an old monastery by nuns. It can be white or red. The color of the marmalade depends solely on the cooking time.
As you'll see in our recipe, we use four parts of quince for three parts of sugar, for a healthier version. But if you prefer to stick with the original recipe, use equal parts of quince and sugar.
4 kg quince
3 kg white granulated sugar
100 g water
