So I had some quince.  2.5 months later I'm straining that mess off.  I'm not sure, but I think it might be fabulous.  Or almost fabulous.  A ton of pectin soaked out of the quince so the liqueur is really syrupy.  Too syrupy to put through coffee filters so, I'm settling for straining through a floursack towel.   The liqueur has an amazing mouthfeel but is cloudy, I'm not sure I care.  The perfume of the quince isn't present, but there are elusive dried fruit notes and it's not too sweet.  Not unpleasant straight.  Could be amazing in the right cocktail.

I think it has a great deal of potential. I am glad you made it and I am looking forward to quince season.
