Pasted???? is that even right???
Sorry for the lack of posts but my camera cord is broken and I really am unable to upload to the laptop (any suggestions please sing out!!!) and so it seems a bit funny to just write without photos...
Anyway tonight the girls went off to the footy with family and friends and I had the run of the house (must get used to saying apartment) and it was time for me to catch up on kitchen capers. The quince were really waiting for me to get into action so finally I did and in a big way... well three ways that is, first preserved in my trustee Fowlers Vacola preserving "thing", then I cut some up and made a paste and I dare not waste the skin, pips and bits because they all went into a pot with water and sugar to make jelly. I almost thought I could make a cordial too but exhaustion got the better of me and really I did not have THAT many quince.
So now I wait for everything to cool a little then I can store it all away. The quince paste will take a week or so to set and then I can wrap that up and label/tag it. I do have some lovely tags my dear friend gifted me last year and I might just use them and return the favour by giving her some paste.
I hope I can get some pictures tomorrow and somehow upload them to show you. I will miss the sweet perfume the quince have delighted me with these past few weeks sitting on my coffee table but I will enjoy eating them too... Perhaps a little bit of the jelly as my liquid for a few cupcakes or even in the icing perhaps... yum...
Pink and pretty is all I see in the jars in my kitchen, such glee!!! Ahhh a poet to boot!!
Perhaps the lovely Jackie would like some of my spoils for all her talents helping me photograph my cupcakes, in order to update my website... lookout Jackie, I am coming your way!!!
