    A very basic recipe, and basic recipes shouldn't leave this many questions open. The amount of water specified didn't cover the quinces - should I have taken more water? A smaller pan? Or leave them only partly covered and cover the pan so they can steam? I chose the third option. After about 50 mins the quinces seemed soft enough so I took them out to reduce the cooking liquid further, but even after an hour and a half it didn't get "red and jelly-like". It did get syrupy, so I left it at that point, but I am still wondering what (if anything) I did wrong. The taste was fine, but I'm looking for another recipe to cook quinces.
