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.
