Quince Cakes

(Dessert Dishes.) - (Twenty-five Cent Dinners For Families Of Six)

Wash some quinces, boil them in enough water to cover

them, until they are tender enough to rub through a seive; to each quart

add a pound and a half of loaf sugar, place the mixture over the fire,

and heat to the boiling point, stirring it constantly, but do not let it

boil. Oil some plates, spread the quince upon them, and dry it in the

mouth of a cool oven. Then cut it in cakes, pack it in a tin box,

between layers of white wrapping paper, when it is thoroughly cold, and

keep it in a cool, dry place. A good dishful can be made for twenty-five

Clear Quince Cakes

Take the apple quince, pare and core it; take as many apples as quinces;

just cover them with water, and boil till they are broken. Strain them

through a sieve or woollen bag, and boil up to a candy as many pounds of

sugar as you have of jelly, which put in your jelly; just let it scald

over the fire, and put it into paste in a stove. The paste is made thus:

Scald quinces in water till they are tender; then pare and scrape them

fine with a knife and put them into apple jelly; let it stand till you

think the paste sufficiently thickened, then boil up to a candy as many

pounds of sugar as you have of paste.
