6 qts. quinces in eighths 5 qts. water

6 qts. sweet apples in quarters 4-6 cups sugar

Cook quinces in water until tender, remove with skimmer; cook apples in same water, remove apples, measure water, adding more if necessary; dissolve sugar in water, heat to boiling, add fruit, simmer a few minutes and put into jars.

Quinces are much improved by combining with sweet apples.

When the apples are cooked with them, the quinces become more tender.

Quinces and citron and quinces and pears may also be combined.
