Quince Marmelade.

Take of the fairest Quinces, wash them very clean, grate them very small, and wring out as much juice as you can; then take other Quinces and cut them into six pieces, put them into a pot, let them be evapoured with hot water, until they be throughly mellow; then take half a pot-full of the former juice, and pour it upon the former, stew'd and cut to pieces; break it well together, and put the rest of the juice amongst it, then | | 193 wring it through a clean thin cloth; seeth no more of this juice at once than will fill a box therewith, and put white Sugar to it, as much as you please.
