How to make a delicious quince cheese | Marmelada


Quince cheese| Marmelada

Just in time Margarida brought quinces from Guarda, because we were already in the last bowl of quince cheese from last year.


1. Weigh and wash the quinces.
2. Cut the quinces in quarters and remove the cores.
3. Boil quinces in water enough to cover them, untill they are tender.
4. Remove the water, put the quince pieces in the food processor and blitz until you have a paste.
5. Put quince paste and sugar (equal weight of the fruit) in the pot.
6. Bring the quince paste to the boil and boil until the setting point is reached. Stir often enough to prevent burning.
7. Remove from the heat and put in a bowl.
8. Let it dry (at the sun) a couple of days.
9. Brush a piece of tracing paper with a strong alcoholic drink (like vodka, tequilla, brandy)
10. Cover the quince cheese with the tracing paper.

Em boa hora a Margarida trouxe marmelos da Guarda, pois já estávamos na  última tigela da marmelada do ano passado.


1. Pese e lave os marmelos.
2. Corte os marmelos em quartos e remova o centro.
3. Cubra os marmelos com água e deixe cozer até ficarem macios.
4. Escorra a água e passe os marmelos com a varinha mágica até obter um creme homogéneo. 
5. Coloque o creme de marmelo numa panela com igual peso de açúcar.
6. Ferver a marmelada até atingir o ponto desejado mexendo com frequência para evitar que queime.
7. Retire do lume e coloque em tigelas.
8. Deixe secar (de preferência ao sol) durante dois ou três dias.
9. Pincele um pedaço de papel vegetal com uma bebida alcoólica forte (como águardente).
10. Cubra a marmelada com o papel vegetal.
