Cooked / raw quince juice – Recipe
For the recipe, just do the following:
- Start by rinsing the quince and removing its black spots (if any) using a knife.
- Cut it into pieces and remove the core with seeds.
- Put the fruit in a pot with water. Them, boil it for about 30 minutes. If the water evaporates before the quince is cooked / soft, add a little more water and wait a few more minutes. Next, wait for the water and the fruit to cool down a bit. Please note: you can skip this step and make raw quince juice, but said drink may be difficult for the body to process and cause digestive problems. Also, cooked quince is much tastier.
- Blend it all (about 1 cup of the boiled water and the cooked fruit) for about 30 seconds or until smooth. Alternatively, you can replace the water with 1 cup of milk for a creamier result. Optional: if the drink’s too sweet, you can add a little water and blend again.
That’s all! You now can make and enjoy this exquisite juice!
