Quince is one of my favourite spoon sweets and I made it three times this year.  The first and second time I made it the same way as I had previously posted the recipe and my children loved it.

My son who was coming from Switzerland for the Christmas holidays told me that he wanted some to take with him so the third time I was making it, it coincided when I had bought a lot of chestnuts so I decided to combine them together.

The quince is peeled and cut into slices and is then boiled with sugar until it is soft and the sugar has become a dense syrup.  It is flavoured with fragrant geranium leaves or vanilla.

I am submitting these yellow beauties to Sunshinemom, of Tongue Ticklers, who is hosting the event FIC Yellow.

The recipe is included in my cookbook Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!

    Ivy, let the quince recipes roll! If I can find some more here, I’ll continue to explore with them in the kitchen. Your glika koutaliou are always wonderful and I think you should try and sell some.

    «Yia sta heria stas». I wonder if you could start a home business like Peter suggests and sell jams and spoon sweets. If you made this 3 times it must be excellent!!

    I love chestnuts but have never eaten a quince! Which is unfortunate for me because this looks really fantastic! I will have to keep an eye out for them, they are not real popular here.

    Awwwww….!! This is torture, Ivy! My mouth is watering, and I want to take in those flavors and some of those fruits – all I can do is drool. Blogs have introduced me to many fruits we do not find in our Country, and quince is one such, chestnut is another! Though I haven’t had it I am already missing the taste:) Thank you for sending this delectable concoction of quince and chestnuts to FIC.
