- In a pot, add the water and the juice from 1 of the lemons.
- Chop the quinces into small cubes and add them to the pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 45 minutes. While they cook they will turn a pretty pink color. If the quinces are not very ripe they will release less juice and will not change color while simmering, they will just remain yellow.
- Line a strainer with some gauze and place over a bowl.
- Transfer all the contents of the pot to the strainer. Press on the quince with a spoon to release all of the juices. Then press down with your hands firmly to make sure all of the juices are released and strain into the bowl.
- Transfer the juices from the bowl into clean saucepan along with the sugar and the juice from the 2nd lemon.
- Place over heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until the sugar melts and a thick sauce has been created.
- When ready, remove from heat and transfer syrup to a jar and refrigerate to chill.
- To make a quince drink with your syrup, fill a water glass 1/3 of the way with syrup. Top of with soda water or sparkling wine and serve!
