Juicing quinces is a very wasteful method, almost 80%, and it is a bit frustrating because quince is not a very juicy fruit, but you will get a very clear and fluid jelly by doing so.
Several months in a cool place.
Home made.

Here is a personal version of the famous country pâté. It's an interesting recipe to prepare in large quantities because it keeps well and freezes easily. The secret of a good pâté is of course the ingredients, but also how it is cooked.

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
