     Quince fruits should be stored for several weeks in a cool place, in a basket covered with canvas. If you want to use them for your tincture, rinse them off, cut them into quarters and remove the seeds. They are best shredded with a mixer, just like cucumbers for the misery. Pour the fruit into a 10-litre jar and pour the crushed spirit over it. Add cloves and cinnamon bark cut into thin strips. If the fruit is not fully submerged, add vodka. Leave it in a warm place. Shake the jar from time to time. After four weeks, pour off the liquid from above the fruit. Pour liquid honey over the fruit and leave for 2 weeks. From time to time it is worth stirring.

If you want a crystal-clear tincture, we should first of all honey or sugar dissolved in water - we should no longer boil, or boil it and collect it from the top of the scum.

Leave for at least a few months in a cool place. People who prefer sweet nalewkas may additionally cover the fruit with a kilogram of sugar, in addition to honey.
