Kumquat Preserves

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds kumquats
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 thin lemon slices
  • 1 quart water
Instructions

Scrub kumquats thoroughly. Prick each kumquat several times with a large needle. Put them in a large saucepan. Cover well with boiling water andsimmer, uncovered, until fruit is tender (about 25-30 minutes). Drain. Combine the sugar,lemon slices, and 1 quart water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil 5 minutes. Add the kumquats and boil gently until fruit is transparent (about 25 minutes). Remove from heat and allow to stand, covered loosely, overnight for the fruit to plump. Discard the lemon slices and bring the mixture, again, to a boil. Skim the kumquats from the syrup with a slotted spoon. Put them in hot sterilized half-pint jars. Continue to boil the syrup until it reaches 220 degrees on candy thermometer (about 8-10 minutes). Pour the boiling syrup over the kumquats, covering them well, to about 1/4 inch from the top of each jar. Seal and refrigerate. Yield 2 pints. Note: Recipes for calamondin and kumquats are interchangeable (or so my sister in Florida who has a couple of calamondin trees and regularly uses them with kumquat recipes tells me). You will find quite a few recipes online for the better-known kumquat.
