  • Fill a large bowl with water and stir in lemon juice. Peel, halve, and core quinces. Depending on their size, cut each into quarters or 8 pieces and immediately submerge in lemon water to prevent browning.

  • Add quinces to saucepan with sugar syrup and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and simmer until quinces are soft and have turned lightly pink, about 50 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
