Quince-Ginger Marmalade (Jam)

This is the easiest, quickest spread I have ever made. I didn't have a recipe so I improvised and it worked. The quince sets beautifully so you need no pectin. The ginger gives it a lovely flavor for your wakeuo toast. This recipe can be doubled. I believe there are some quince that need longer cooking time than the ones I have. I have looked at several recipes on the Internet and they say to boil for 2 hours so you will have to boil until softened
