Granny Smith Paste

Time: 10 minutes prep; 40 minutes in the Thermomix
Yield: 600 grams

The mix-and-cook facility of the Thermomix makes apparently tricky orchard fruit pastes a cinch.

Quince paste should be firm, even-textured, slightly grainy and deep red in colour. Served with soft cheese and the best, crusty bread or crisp, it’s a matchless end to a meal. It also offers a way for cunning cooks to sneak a little year-round quince magic into anything from slow-roasted lamb to pan-cooked duck breasts. Simply reconstitute a little paste with water 
(or good-quality vinegar, or freshly squeezed orange juice) over low heat until it’s at whatever consistency you require for basting, or to deglaze a pan to make a deliciously perfumed sauce.

Apple and pear pastes are rarely, if ever, found in shops so they are well worth making at home, not just for your own pantry but as gifts for friends who love cheese. The natural tartness of Granny Smith apples balances the paste’s sugar content; for pear paste, we find green-skinned varieties such as Williams or Packham work best.

Granny Smith Paste
Ingredients
5 medium Granny Smith apples, approximately 1 kilogram in total
300 grams white sugar
40 grams lemon juice
Method
  1. Cut the apple flesh into chunks, leaving the skin on. Weigh the apple into the Thermomix bowl; the weight should be 560–600 grams once cores have been removed and discarded.
  2. Add the sugar and lemon juice then chop 10 seconds/speed 6.
  3. Cook 10 minutes/100 degrees/speed soft with the MC in place. The apples will have created quite a bit of juice and should be soft and collapsed at this stage—if not, cook a little longer.
  4. Blend 20 seconds/speed 9 to create a smooth mixture.
  5. Scrape down the bowl and cook 15 minutes/Varoma/speed 1 with the MC removed and the TM basket on top.
  6. Scrape down the bowl once more and cook 15 minutes/Varoma/speed 1 to reach the setting point. When the setting point is reached, thick and large lava-like bubbles will erupt regularly and the paste will have changed from a greenish colour to a more golden colour. To test for setting point, place a teaspoonful of the paste on a saucer in the fridge and let it cool completely. The paste should become firm enough that a knife will cut through cleanly. If the paste needs more cooking, continue in intervals of 5 minutes/Varoma/speed 1.
  7. Carefully pour the hot mixture into a shallow container and give it few short raps on the bench to remove any air bubbles. Allow to cool and set overnight. 

AND … Wrapped well and stored in a cool place, it will keep indefinitely.
