Behi or Quince Murabba

Behi (Quince) is a fruit of Gods. It stimulates circulation in the cardiovascular system and strengthens the heart. Quinces are an ancient fruit with a unique flavor profile and several potential benefits. Quince is not as widely available today, but in terms of fruit families, they are a close relative of popular fruits like apples and pears. Unlike other fruits, quinces aren’t eaten raw. Instead, they’re best cooked or turned into jam or (murabba) marmalade. The cooked Quince when eaten improves digestive health and is known to help reduce cholesterol. They’ve been used in traditional, age-old grandmother remedies for centuries. Quinces contain fiber and several essential vitamins and minerals, making them a nutritious addition to almost any diet. A single quince packs 15% of the DV for vitamin C, which is essential for a healthy, functioning immune system. This fruit also supplies moderate amounts of vitamin C and copper, plus small amounts of B vitamins, iron, potassium, and magnesium among many others. So how can you enjoy all these benefits of Quince? Well, turn it into BehiMurabba. What do you need? Quinces, oranges, sugar, lemon, cardamom, First start with peeling the quinces and cut them into thin slices or small cubes. Peel the oranges with a potato peeler, leaving behind the pith and cut the peel into Julienne (long thin strips). Place the quinces and the orange peel in a pan with 3¾ cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and boil gently until the quinces are soft for about 40 to 45 minutes. Now add the sugar and increase the heat until all the sugar has dissolved.
