How to Harvest Quince Seeds

The parts of the quince that are used for medicinal purposes are the quince fruit (Fructus cydoniae), leaves (Folium cydoniae), and seeds (Semen cydoniae). To harvest the quince seeds, remove them from the fruit when making compotes, jams, or jellies from the quince pulp. Allow the seeds to dry naturally, by arranging them on trays, or sheets of paper, in a thin layer. If you want to speed up the drying process, you can use a dehydrator (at 40°C/104°F maximum!) or dry them on the stove, on very low heat, with the door ajar.

This natural remedy is only made with quince seeds which contain mucilage that are soluble in cold water. Put 2 tablespoons of dried and crushed quince seeds in 200 ml of water at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Strain and sweeten the cold maceration to taste with raw honey.

5 Health Uses of Quince Seed Maceration

  1. Constipation – the mucilage in the quince seeds softens the feces, thus easing defecation. You can make a more complex cold maceration in this case, with 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and one tablespoon of quince seeds, according to the recipe presented above. Drink a cup in the evening at bedtime, or drink 2 cups of quince seed maceration a day, in the morning and evening.
  2. Bleeding hemorrhoids (caused by constipation) – drink one cup of quince seed maceration in the evening.
  3. High blood pressure – Quinces are rich in potassium, an indispensable mineral when using diuretic treatments (nefrix, furosemide, indapamide) for high blood pressure. The symptoms of low potassium are muscle weakness, paralysis, respiratory failure, and cardiac disorders. Regular consumption of quince remedies is recommended as a complementary therapy for high blood pressure. Drink 2 cups of quince seeds maceration day, sweetened to taste with raw honey.
  4. Coughing up blood, and bronchitis accompanied by dry cough – quince seed maceration is expectorant and emollient, making it a great remedy for lung conditions. Drink two cups a day sweeten with raw honey to taste.
  5. Hoarseness, cough, and bronchitis – in this case, prepare a hot infusion of quince seeds by steeping 1 teaspoon of seeds in 200 ml of boiling water for 10-15 minutes. Drink 2 cups a day.
