For this homemade quince liquor you need sugar, an alcohol base, a little bit of time - and of course fresh quince. In the first step, a juice is made from the quince.

In order for the liqueur to last a long time, clean working is particularly important. Sterilize the bottles, funnels and cotton cloth best with boiling water. Together with alcohol and sugar, the liqueur lasts for at least a year. Provided, of course, he will not be drunk before.
By the way: If you prefer to use a different brandy than grain for the alcoholic base, you can also use vodka. He is also high-proof and relatively tasteless.

What to do if the quince liqueur gels?
For fruits with a high pectin content, it may happen that the liqueur gels over time. To prevent this, there are different tricks. A reliable method, which is also used in the fruit juice and wine preparation, is the addition of an anti-gelling agent. They can be bought in pharmacies and drugstores and can also help to liquefy already prepared liqueurs. But watch out: The Antigel consists of enzymes, so it must not be heated.
Quince - forgotten aroma miracle
Although they are a true marvel of flavor, aroma and healthy ingredients, quinces are rarely found in supermarkets. On the other hand, those who regularly shop at weekly markets or count among the lucky ones with their own orchard know the fruit for sure: quinces remind of apples or pears and have a light fluff that needs to be rubbed off with a kitchen towel before use. In fact, one distinguishes the fruits in pear and apple quince. The yellow fruits have a very firm, slightly grainy flesh with a tart-sour taste. In addition, they contain healthy ingredients such as pectins, potassium or crude fiber and are suitable for different forms of preparation. Very popular is quince jelly, but also for juices or liqueurs the quince is often used.
