Quince Jam


Believe it or not, but this was the first jam I’ve ever made. I spent some time home with a nasty cold/flu, and I thought of making a jam for more medicinal reasons than culinary. I’ve been curious about quince jams before, especially being impressed by their color. Somehow, I was avoiding making jams because of an assumption that it would be complicated. I couldn’t have been more wrong! It is very easy and the attractive color just occurs by itself (some sort of mystical transformation). So, if someone wants to try, I definitely recommend this method.

700 gr. sugar
Juice of half a lemon
Zest of 1 orange
1/4 tsp. of Cinnamon
A pinch of nutmeg powder

Cheese, Rosemary and Garlic Puff Pastry


‘T was the day after XMAS and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…

Seriously, it was a morning after some holidays (and holiday meals) and all I’ve had left in the refrigerator was leftovers – some cheese and sheet of ready-made puff pastry dough. Apparently, this was enough to prepare a very quick (less than 5 minutes) and very tasty salty pie for breakfast.
