Soft, delicious and piquant - jam-like spread that works well for bread or to pair with cheese. It is quite a lot of work to make, but it is so fantastic that I am planing to do it again this year. It does take quite a bit of work, but it is worth it!

Wash apples and quince thoroughly
Cut them in quarters. Do not remove the cored and peal.
Boil water, quince and apples together under the lid until they are tender. It takes 30-60 min
Moss them through a sieve with a spatula. It takes quite a while, but is not difficult.
Pour the mash back into the pot and add the rest of the ingredients. Let it simmer for 20-30 min. Make sure not to let it burn
Season with ginger, lemon and sugar.
Pour the hot quince butter on clean glass.
