    evelyn/athens's Note:

    Wait till you see the lovely orangey-rose the quince turns into once cooked - gorgeous! Spoon Sweets are traditional sweets, always readily available in Greek homes. When guests drop by, it is good form to offer them a teaspoonful of a spoon sweet, served on a demi-tasse plate, and accompanied by a large glass of ice water. A truly welcoming gesture.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    jar

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 lbs quinces
    • 4 cups water
    • 2 1/2 lbs sugar
    • 1 lemon, juice of, the
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 cup blanched halved almonds
    • 3 rose-scented geranium leaves, washed (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel the quinces and grate coarsely (I use my trusty box grater).
    2. 2
      Put in a large saucepan; add water, cover and cook over moderate heat until soft.
    3. 3
      Add sugar and cook stirring, over medium heat, until the syrup is thick.
    4. 4
      Towards the end, add the lemon juice, the almonds, the vanilla and the rose geranium leaves (if using- do use them if you can get them).
    5. 5
      When cool, put in large jar and store.
    6. 6
      (Greeks just store this on the shelf, without extra processing. I don't know much about canning/storing, but I've never been sick. Still, it might be best to just keep in the fridge and spoon out as needed.) Note: This is FANTASTIC on vanilla ice cream.
