QUINCE MURABA

Quince is bright golden-yellow when it matures in late autumn and has a strongly perfumed flesh. The cooked fruit has been used throughout history as a food. In Georgia, the fruit is cooked with sugar to make Quince Muraba.

The quince will turn a reddish color. This can take from 1.5 to 2.5 hours or even longer. When cooked, bottle the quince muraba in airtight jars and store in a refrigerator or a dark, cool place.
