This kumquat jam resembles a marmalade, with lovely rind pieces that spread across your hot buttered toast. It takes time to slice the kumquats as they're small; ensure you've a few hours! You don't want the seeds in the jam, so using a food prosessor is a no-no. The extra seeds have the pectin that will be used help set the jam, though.

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 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
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 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
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 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
