This recipe is for 1 1/2 pounds clean and diced quinces. Two pounds of whole fruit once cleaned, peeled, and cored, roughly equals this amount.
Do not discard the syrup. Use it in other recipes or add some to cold, sparkling water for a refreshing drink. It is also quite delicious mixed with Prosecco wine.
For a wonderful addition to your apple pie filling, thanks to its beautiful pink color and firmness, slice the fruit instead of dicing it.
