Quince sweetens this marmalade as it simmers and fills the house with its distinctive autumn aroma. It’s great on toast or bagels for breakfast in the morning! Thanks to our Test Kitchen for the recipe.

"I made this about a month ago with some quinces and oranges that needed to be used up. It is so good and a lot easier than regular marmalade. The quince gives it almost a honey flavor. The only thing I may change is doubling the orange peel. I will definitely be making this again next autumn."
