Can anyone supply a recipe for Cumquat Marmalade pleasejimbo
Cut fruit finely and remove seeds. For each cup of fruit add 2 cups of water.
Bring the water and fruit to boil and simmer until the skin is very soft.
For every cup of cooked fruit and water add 1 cup of sugar.
Bring to boil and rapidly cook until jells.
Bottle hot in sterilized bottles and seal.
Cook in batches of 4 cups fruit/liquid to 4 cups sugar at a time instead of making all the marmalade at once. Repeat with other batches.
I find that this usually only takes about 20 minutes to cook and produces a light marmalade whereas cooking it all at once does not allow the liquid to evaporate as quickly and can produce darker marmalade.
