The Festival of the Quince continues
Quince Brandy is a wonderful way to add warmth to cold winter days and nights. The fruity, citrusy fragrance of the quince seems to both mellow and enliven the flavor of brandy.
I keep this large canning jar of Quince Brandy in my refrigerator. I use it to moisten cake and ladyfingers for trifles or to add a richness to soups and sauces. It is also splendid as a digestive after dinner.
This year, I’m looking forward to sharing this exquisite concoction with friends, and you can too! Read on to learn how to make quince brandy for yourself and your friends in time for the holidays.
If you don’t have a quince tree from which to pluck, look for quince in your grocery store (Whole Foods carries them in my area) or at farmer’s markets.
