This cardamom quince jam is my favorite thing to put on top of a piece of toast with feta cheese. It adds a sweet richness to the saltness of the cheese that makes for a perfect breakfast treat. It's a match made in heaven, and a jam you'll want to stock up on every year during quince season.
Bring the sugar, water, and cardamom pods to very light boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
Add the quince and lemon juice. Reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 2 hours until the quince is tender and dark in color.
Remove from heat. The jam will thicken as it cools. If you want a smoother jam, use a potato masher.
