Christmas Candle- Spiced Quince

Wed, 26 Nov 2014

Quince is a small hard fruit similar to a pear but with a very strong perfume.

There was a time in Ireland when every grand house had a couple of quince trees on its grounds. Since then, the fruit has dropped in popularity but it was once the height of sophistication and fashion.

The high pectin content in quinces means they are perfect for making jams and jellies, and often they’re served at the Christmas table with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.

This is what I have taken as inspiration for my seasonal aromatic scented candle; spiced quince laced with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, which will add a wonderful fragrant scent to your home.
