Ingredients for White marmalade

Step by step instruction of cooking White marmalade

Шаг 1

Wash the quinces, peel removing the core and peel. Cut into quarters and immediately put in cold water. (Dishes for cooking white marmalade take a stainless steel or enameled). It will protect the prepared quince pulp from darkening.
Of water and cook sugar syrup. Syrup boil to the "pearl" of the boiling point of sugar. This is when the surface of the syrup will form persistent bubbles, similar to pearls.
Quince stew under a lid with a small amount of water until tender. Wipe in the mashed potatoes. Combine the resulting puree with sugar syrup, put on the heat until bubbles on the surface. Turn off the fire, allow to cool a little, pour it into shape for drying, cover vasanai paper or parchment.

Шаг 2

Marmalade dried at room temperature for a few weeks until it can be cut with a knife.
The finished marmalade can be stored in boxes interleaved with parchment.

Шаг 3

My favorite variant covers of marmalade, a dessert, with a slice of cheese, in combination with a glass of dry red table wine.
Bon appetit!
