definitely double the recipe. it is wonderful! serve it warm! and do not put the applesauce through a sieve, much better lumpy with the tastes of the quince simply heavenly! serve it in glass bowls with a cinnamon stick. it got rave reviews by 2 diff dinner parties. so easy and an elegant upgrade from plain applesauce. enjoy!
