Expert Tips

Cut rinds into smaller strips if you dislike the taste of pulp in your jams. Because the rind acts as a thickening agent, removing the rind from the recipe is not advised.

These little fruits look just like mini oranges, but with a sour kick. Perfect to pair with a thick slice of wheat bread, homemade kumquat jam is an easy and wholesome addition to any holiday morning menu.

Directions

  • 1 With a sharp knife (so to not lose kumquat juice), slice in half and remove white seeds and pit. Slice kumquat, with rind and all, lengthwise into long strips.
  • 2 In a large pot, add kumquat pieces with half a cup of water. Cook down until water has evaporated before adding a second half a cup of water. Continue adding half cups of water until kumquat rinds are soft and cooked through.
  • 3 Add sugar. Stirring often, bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes or until jam begins to thicken. This time will vary according to the size of your pot.
  • 4 Remove from heat. Jam will continue to thicken as it cools.

These little fruits look just like mini oranges, but with a sour kick. Perfect to pair with a thick slice of wheat bread, homemade kumquat jam is an easy and wholesome addition to any holiday morning menu.
