More so a marmalade, as you have those lovely, sticky rind pieces that fold themselves across your hot buttered toast. It takes time to slice the cumquats as they're small, ensure you have a few spare hours! You don't want the seeds in the jam, so using a food processor is a no-no. The extra seeds will be used to help set the jam, in a separate bag.
Pour hot jam into sterilised jars. Sterilise jars by placing them on a tray and leave in a 100 degree C oven for 20 minutes. This jam will last in a cool, dark place for 12 months, refrigerate after opening.
What a wonderful recipe. I bought some cumquats at the markets to make this marmalade and it was so delicious I have now bought a cumquat tree. Slicing the cumquats is very time consuming but I think the finished result is worth every minute/hour. Thanks for a great recipe. - 27 Oct 2010
I made this on a lazy Sunday afternoon! Fantastic! I must admit I cut the cumquat in half to get the seeds and then put them through my bar mix so they turned out fabulous. Great, easy to follow recipe and the end result was yumoo - 19 May 2012
Absolutely delicious. Our young tree only provided 600g of fruit and the recipe was very easy to adapt to suit. Will save this recipe for next year when hopefully we have more fruit. - 18 Jan 2011
