Pickled Quince

Pickled Quince

Quince is a beautiful, fragrant fruit that is definitely underutilised. This is a pickle using Rice Vinegar (although this can be replaced with other vinegars) and some spices. It showcases how beautiful quince can be.

Bring all of the ingredients except the quince to the boil in a saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour the hot liquid and spices over the quince in the jar.

Screw the lid on the jar and allow to cool. Leave on a sunny window for at least 1 week before using.

It will keep in the fridge for some time.

recipe notes and alternatives
Try this recipe with kohlrabi and large long radishes. It is a similar recipe to Pickled Jicama, and works well with Quince.

If you prefer to cook Quince before pickling, simmer it in the vinegar mix for 15 – 20 minutes or until tender.
