Quince Giveaway

No more quinces. Unless you count these.


Don't worry I'm not giving these away. Compost I think. The 2010 Quince Diaries are finished. Well, almost, there's still the quince vodka to look forward to, and the chutney, and there is quite a lot of quince purée in the freezer. Oh, and the jars of jelly and the quince cheese. But no more quinces to chop and peel. I'm a little relieved to tell the truth.

 I am glad so many of you have been enjoying my quince adventures. It is a little mean of me to dangle all my quincey goodness in front of you without giving you the chance of sampling it isn't it? A giveaway is called for. I have two quince cheeses to give away to two lucky people. I think, to ensure that the cheeses arrive in good condition this had better be a UK only giveaway. I hope that is alright?

To enter my Quince Giveaway you need to be a UK blogger and leave a comment on this post. You have until Monday 8th of November. Good luck!

So what will be happening in my kitchen next?
Here are my supplies. Can you guess what I'll be making?



Oops-the golden syrup shouldn't be there. That stuff gets everywhere in my kitchen. No wonder my feet are always sticking to the floor.


Three different things which share many ingredients. All three of which are best made about 6-8 weeks ahead of time.

Comments

  1. All Christmas related too I would guess - cake, pud and I can't guess the third.

  2. Three things? Well I can think of mincemeat, christmas cake, oh and i guess maybe christmas pudding?
    I would absolutely LOVE to win some of your quince goodness, I've been drooling all over it since you started this year's quince diaries!!

  3. Mincemeat?
    Have to say I would love to win one of the quince cheeses; alas, I have no blog! (I have been toying with the idea of starting one for ages, missing the chance of the cheese may well be the kick up the rear I need to get me started :-)

  7. Yummmmmmmm, memories of my grandmother's kitchen and the smell when we use to make the Christmas puddings in the October half term! Oh heaven!
    I am also guessing you will be making your Christmas cake and mincemeat for your tarts and pies!
    Your kids and husband will be breathing in deeply when they walk in the door, smiling broadly and asking for "samples"!

  9. You've just reminded me that I need to think about mincemeat making too. I've never made it before but having been given some homemade last year, I'm definately going to this year.

  10. Am guessing its cake,pudding & mincemeat time - your house will smell so festive :)

    Yes please to being included in your giveaway.

  11. Because of the quince diaries, I bought some quinces just to try! I just made apple and quince pies with them and would love to try your cheese
    I guess you are making christmas puddings, cake and mincemeat. Mine will have slightly different ingrediants as my OH does not eat nuts or mixed peal, which is why I started making my own many, many years ago......

  12. Dried fruit and suet it's got to be Christmas pud - then again maybe there is suet in a Christmas cake - I haven't a clue, my mum always makes mine. Good old mum!

    Christmas pudding! Have I guessed correctly? Am not sure whether I qualify for your competition because even though I live in the UK, I don't have a blog... I just leave comments in other people's.... is that ok? Your quince diaries have been delightful so even if I don't participate I'll try to make one of your delish recipes sometime. Thanks Sue, x Pati from London

  14. Oh goodness, I bet they are 3 very British things because I have absolutely no idea! I'd love to taste your quince cheese though...

  17. Just made biscotti for presents. Pase 1 is in the freezer ready for phase2 nearer the time. The house smells yummy. I can only imagine yours does too.

  18. Mmmmmmmm! I'm trying not to do any baking at the moment as I'm getting too fat. I'm quite good at leaving Christmas things for Christmas and not eating them too early though so maybe I should have a go at some puds or mincemeat, but I'll leave the cake till later as I use the Nigella chocolate fruit cake recipe which I think needs to be made nearer the time or frozen.
    I'd love to try some Quince cheese too!

  19. Ooh definitely Christmas cooking, mincemeat, pudding and cake - it's all happening in my kitchen too.

    I would love to try some quince cheese - please...

  20. My husband has demanded I leave a comment on this post, quince cheese is his favourite and best.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yay! Me thinks youy will be busy, making Christmas cake, pud, Mincemeat, Sue, have you ever made Stollen? I really like this as it's a much lighter version of the traditional Xmas cake, which i'm not partial too, or Xmas pud, come to that, I make shed loads of mince pies though... I would love to sample your quince cheese with my crackers and mature cheddar. x

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm going with the consensus - Christmas cake, pudding and mincemeat (can't think of any other Christmas recipe with suet). Would love a chance to win a quince cheese, too!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'd love the chance to try your Quince cheeses, I've so enjoyed the Quince Diaries, they really have made me wish for a Quince Tree! I guess we're moving on to Christmas now? xxx

  24. Just discovered your blog - it's beautiful, really enjoyed reading and will definitely be back! Thanks. x

  25. ooh christmas baking. yum, I should start mine soon. perhaps this year I'll try a pudding I'm always a bit afraid of boiling them dry.....

    ReplyDelete
  26. PLEASE include me. I'd love to taste your Quince Cheese. I reckon you're making Christmas puddings or mince pies or cake??? x

    ReplyDelete
  27. Never tried a quince in an form but more than happy to start with a cheese :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. How yummy, I guess Christmas cake, christmas pudding and the suet made me think mince pies.
    I love Christmas. Thanks for the chance I am a definite cheeseofile if there is such a title and would love to try.
    Email details are on my blog, Thanks so much.

  29. Well, I'm guessing a christmas pudding.
    I love your blog.
    All the things you make from your quinces are amazing.

    Best wishes

  30. Most definitely Christmas cake, pud and mincemeat! I too am soaking my fruit this weekend for the cake (but I like to leave it for a week) and am tempted to try either Delia's creole christmas cake or Nigellas black cake again this year. Is it possible to have too much cake?

    And I would love to win a quince cheese - to savour some with a nice sharp cheddar in a rare moment of quiet - mmm bliss!

    Hi Sue
    Your words and pictures are such an inspiration and bring back memories of living in Kempsey, Worcester, about 30 years ago where we had a garden with a bountiful fig tree and the countryside dripped with fruit in autumn. I can't wait for my new kitchen to be completed so that I can try out some more of your culinary delights!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Christmas pudding. My favourite! I think also Christmas cake and mincemeat are on the cards. Sounds lovely

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm just plain jealous of your tree! I'd not had access to any quinces but would love to try your quince treats. I've nearly got to the end of the windfall apples I've been given and have had fun trying new things with them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You are the Queen of Quinces my dear!

    It's that time again. I shall be doing all that fruity stuff this weekend too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Christmas cake, pudding and mincemeat??? I don't know I'm not teh world's best cook! That's why I love eating cheese so much! On crackers - minimal effort required!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have never tasted Quince so please enter me in this giveaway because my mind is boggling at the idea of Quince cheese!

    It looks like a very fruity Christmas pudding is on the cards

  38. To those who don't know what quince cheese I wrote a post about it just the other day- The Quince Diaries (8). It would be nice if you read my blog before entering my giveaways :o)

    I've been enjoying reading your blog for ages now and have followed your Quince Diaries with interest, as we do not have quinces where I live in Aus. Anyway, I noticed a small tub of quince 'paste' in the supermarket the other day and was tempted to try it. I will get some today, as I am ineligible for your give-away - don't have a blog and don't live in the UK! And, thanks for the reminder about making Christmas fare 6-8 weeks in advance.

  40. Thank you for the competition.

  42. Christmas pud, mincemeat and christmas cake are tasty, wouldlove to try quince cheese

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd love to be entered to win some Quince cheese, please :)

    I'm also guessing christmas cooking, mincemeat, sweet mince pies, christmas puds and christmas cake. Yum yum

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm guessing you're making mincemeat (for mince pies), christmas pudding and christmas cake. Nobody likes pudding in our house so I normally make a trifle, and the christmas cake is sponge. I've never tried quince, but up until a week ago I'd never had pumpkin. Turned it into a pie and couldn't stop eating it!! Good luck with your baking!

  45. Gah! Missed my chance to pretend to be Queen Liz I. Never mind. I'll make myself a paper ruff and boss the children about. That should sort it.
