Muraba-E-Behi (Quince Jam)

  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 45m
  • Ready In : 60m

On a cold winter day quince jam is like a sun that shines on a snow white table cloth...


  • 2 large quinces
  • 2 oranges
  • 4½ cups sugar
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tbs rosewater


Step 1

Peel and core the quinces and cut into thin slices or small cubes.

Step 2

Peel the oranges with a potato peeler, leaving behind the pith and cut the peel into julienne strips.

Step 3

Place the quinces and the orange peel in a pan with 3¾ cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and boil gently until the quinces are soft, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Step 4

Now add the sugar and increase the heat until all the sugar has dissolved.

Step 5

Add the lemon juice and cardamom and boil gently until the mixture has thickened and is syrupy.

Step 6

The quinces will have turned a lovely rosy pink/red color.

Step 7

Add the rosewater and leave to cool before placing in bottles or jars.
