|Part of this year's crop was earmarked for this delicious and warming winter drink - well worth a try if you can get hold of quinces - you only need a couple.|
1 1/2 - 2 quinces
spices - for this one I used star anise, vanilla pod and cinnamon sticks
Wipe the quinces and cut them into quarters, or big chunks; place in a wide necked jar - Kilner or similar. Pour over brandy, add a little sugar ( I used 1 dessertspoonful, but add to taste), pop in the spices, seal the jar and shake. Leave in a cool dark place for a couple of months, shaking occasionally. Will be ready for Yule.
