Spiced Quince Liqueur
2 large quinces, washed, cored, and grated
4 cups or 750 ml vodka (I use Monopolowa)
2 cups honey (I prefer wildflower or berry honey because of their floral flavor, but clover is also fine)
2 3-inch cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp mace
1 tsp almond extract
- Put the honey and vodka in a saucepan over medium heat and stir occasionally until the honey is dissolved.
- Put all ingredients in a big jar and shake it.
- Store in a cool place and shake it once a week.
- Should be ready by Thanksgiving. Strain through a coffee filter and put in a pretty jar, where the liqueur will just get better as it ages.
