The last stop before Christmas, the fourth Sunday in Advent, is approaching …

We have done the Walnut, the Blackberry, and the Sloe Liqueurs.

Now it is time for my most favourite of autumn fruit turned into our fourth Advent tipple:

the quince.

Quince liqueur prior to filtering and after it has spent about two months infusing: two raw, grated quinces, finely chopped fresh ginger, ground cinnamon, a touch of ground nutmeg, 500 g of caster sugar in a preserving jar topped up with brandy (in my case) or vodka.
