Author Notes: Back home in Croatia we had two quince trees and my mom us to make lots of jams and quince cheese my father us to make quince brandy ( it is legal there ). What I am trying to say, quince cheese and jam was staple food in our house.Then I notice recipe for The Figgy Quince Amaretto Nut Loaf by Hazel Paterson from It's Not F***ing Rocket Science. I was inspired.
We alleyways had plain, since ir is not quince season I did buy quince jam and melted in the pot and cook little longer, on the end I mix in chopped nuts and dry fruit and reshaped into two small loafs. It is perfect for cheese platter.


Makes 2 loafes

  • 1 1/2 cups ( 375 ml ) quince jam
