Quince Jam (A Delicious Natural Cough Suppressant)

Quince Jam (A Delicious Natural Cough Suppressant)

Give it a try if you ever find a quince.
This is a sweet and aromatic quince jam. It's great as a snack for kids over the age of 1 year.

Ingredients: An easy-to-make amount

1 large
60 g or more
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon


1. This is a quince. It looks like "karin", or Chinese quince, but it is slightly different. I used this size for this recipe (it was about 340 g after removing the seeds).
2. Since you will cook the skin also, rinse it well.
3. Remove the seeds, and cut into bite-sized pieces while soaking the cut pieces in a bowl of water to prevent it from discoloring.
4. Combine all of the ingredients in a pot and turn on the heat to low.
5. Bring it to a boil. When the flesh is tender and the quince becomes immersed in the juices, it is ready.
6. Pack it in a jar while still hot. If there is not enough liquid, add honey.
7. You can eat it as-is, or else it is delicious to drink it by diluting it with hot water or sake.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I was little, my grandmother always had a stock of this for us.
I used to pretend that I had coughs, so that I could have some.
