We think you’re going to love this recipe from Alyce Alexandra’s book ‘Quick Fix in the Thermomix’. It’s the perfect addition to the cheese platter. You won’t believe how inexpensive it really is to make your own quince paste. And it really makes quite a lot, so you can even give it as a gift with some cheeses. It will keep for a couple of months in the refrigerator if stored in an airtight container.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "I’ve never loved my thermo mixer as much as when I made thisquince paste. It tastes EXACTLY the same as the store bought product (my husband and I did a blind taste test), yet made more than I knew what to do with for so much less than the cost of buying a tiny tub. I started giving it out to family members!" - Sarah
