Quince is cherished in my home land. There is no house without a quince preserves jar, and no visit without the same treat.

I remember when i was little, i was searching the cupboards to find the hidden jar, withound anyone knowing. I remember my father to add quince preserves on top of yoghurt in the morning, with waiting his greek coffee to be ready.


  • 500 gr quinces
  • 500 gr sugar
  • 1 glass of water
  • 1 twig apple geranium
  • juice of 1/2 lemon


  • Peel the quinces.
  • Remove the heart and seeds from each quince and cut into small rectangles.
  • Place the quince pieces with the water in a saucepan and let them simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add sugar and simmer until it thickens.
  • Add the lemon juice and apple geranium.
  • Let them come to a boil and remove from heat.
