Guava Passionfruit Quince Jam

Our Guava Passion Fruit Quince Jam was a great pairing with Chevre.   And goes very well with light Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.  This recipe makes about 6 pints

2 lbs                  quince, rinsed, cored, grated with leave peel
½ cup                guava puree
½ cup                passion fruit puree
4¼ cups            water
¼ cup                lemon juice
1 Tbsp               lemon zest
4 cups               sugar

Working around the core, grate the quince (including the peel), for about 6 cups.

Bring the water to a boil in a think bottomed sauce pan.  Add the quince, lemon juice and lemon zest. Reduce heat and simmer until the quince is soft, about 10 minutes.

Add the sugar and bring to a boil again. Stir to dissolve all of the sugar. Lower the heat to medium. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally until quince jam turns pink and thickens to desired consistency, about 30-50 minutes.

Add the guava and passion fruit purees.  Stir well and reduce for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.  Freezes well

The purees we like are from Napa Perfect Puree.
