Cranberry-Quince Jam

Only a few days and the first Advent Sunday is knocking on the door! It is a great way to get in mood for the upcoming season with a mug of hot chocolate, some freshly baked scones and a spicy cranberry-quince jam. Though it has stopped snowing already hours ago, it is still possible to get in mood with listening to xmas songs. It is time for me to start planning the menu!

200 g sugar
200 ml water
200 g quince
150 g cranberry
1 cinnamon stick
1 orange
1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/4 teaspoon clove
1/4 teaspoon allspice

Bring sugar and water to the boil, in the meantime peel quinces and cut into small cubes. As soon as the syrup is cooking add quince, spices and cook over low heat for about 30 minutes. Then add cranberry, orange juice and its freshly grated zest and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Then puree and pour into sterilized jars.
