the colour of...

this quince jelly! - of which I am extremely proud - curiously is nothing at all like the colour of its fruit, nor its flesh!  it is gloriously, christmas red and jewel like though, I have the jars strategically balancing on the sash window in the kitchen, the light shining through as stained glass - far too good to eat.
so, if you fancy making a window ornament like this, simply boil up a couple of pounds of quince then strain through a jelly bag. add the strained juice to sugar (300ml juice to 300gm granulated sugar) boil to setting point and can up. then put them against the light of the window and admire the glowing colour!
