I tried using a crockpot for plum preserves and it didn't work at
all. They got brown and nasty and smelled like prunes, but hadn't
thickened. I did a second batch in a sheet pan spread out half an
inch thick in a low oven, and it worked brilliantly. I got clear
pink beautiful preserves that tasted great. That was plums not
quinces. I had the crockpot close to full. Maybe it would work with
a smaller batch.
