Quince butter

I found an interesting-sounding recipe for quince butter but have lost it now I have some quinces! Does anyone have a recipe for this, please, and would be willing to share it? Thanks.

Wash and chop quince and cook, seeds, skin and all, plus 1 chopped orange, in just enough water to cover. A good 30mins until really squidgy. Rub through a sieve, leaving behind the seeds and skin. Weigh pulp and add equal amount of sugar. Return to pan, stir until sugar is dissolved, stir every now and again, until thick. Jar. Qunices can be cooked liked apples for puds.

Thank you, Bluebell. I'm about to make Membrillo - name sounds more interesting than plain Quince Paste, and thought I would like to try the butter. Now I can, thank you.
I remember about 50 years ago my dad cooked whole quinces in a roasting dish with water and sugar. We ate the quinces with custard and Dad made jelly with the sugar and water. Quite an economical and delicious way to use quinces.

Thank you deepee5 l googled Membrillo and showed it to my sons partner and she was nearly in tears.
She is from Argentina and when l showed her l had made some quince paste she was so happy and she showed me recipes for pasta frol, which is basically a quince paste tart and the one l am going to try uses port to mix up with the quince paste to bring it to a spreading consistency and a sweet pastry.
She pronounced it as mem bree sho

I tried making the paste once. My recipe said boil and I did! Ended up with a kitchen full of sticky fruit splatters. They went everywhere! I use the jam in pies and stuff - it really has got a lovely flavour.
