Recipe by Bergy
This is the easiest, quickest spread I have ever made. I didn't have a recipe so I improvised and it worked. The quince sets beautifully so you need no pectin. The ginger gives it a lovely flavor for your wakeuo toast. This recipe can be doubled. I believe there are some quince that need longer cooking time than the ones I have. I have looked at several recipes on the Internet and they say to boil for 2 hours so you will have to boil until softened

We love this combination. As French Tart, we have a quince tree too, and I'm happy to find such a delicious preserve.
I did not use candied ginger (I had not at home), but I used the juice of fresh grated ginger (only grate, add some water and press out!). I left som pieces of quince in the marmelade.
