About this recipe: A sweet home made kumquat marmalade made with fresh kumquats and a couple of oranges. No added pectin is necessary for this seasonal treasure. The amount of marmalade produced can be adjusted easily to the amount of fruit you have on hand - just stick to the ratios mentioned in the directions.
Altered ingredient amounts. Halve the water. Still makes nearly 6lb. The steeping for 12-24 hours is very important for the set, which is jelly-ish to begin with. - 07 Nov 2009
I wonder if the original may have used a different type of kumquat (i.e. bigger), hence the huge quantity of water? I halved it, and still felt that I had ample - made over 6 lb jars with my 24 titchy kumquats and medium oranges. - 12 Oct 2009
I have tried many recipes of this , but this is by far the best and easiest to do, I added a bit more orange to it , and a couple of tangerines it gives it a nice and aromatic taste ( that's a personal preference ) it's worth trying. Let me know of the result if you do it. I have chopped all fruits to matches stick size having remove the pips and added a sugar vanilla sachet near the end of the simmering . I have processed the full jars in a hot water bath for 10m for long lasting shelf life,. - 12 Feb 2016
