Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g cumquats
1 litre water
1.2kg sugar

Method

  1. Preparing the cumquats

    Wash the cumquats. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, immerse the cumquats and let them cook for 5 minutes to soften the skins. Be careful to make sure the cumquats don’t split during the boiling process.
  2. Marinating in the syrup

    Put the water and 600 g of the sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Place the cumquats in the syrup and allow them to cook for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat, cover and set aside overnight.
  3. Cooking

    The next day, strain out the syrup and bring it to the boil again, adding 200 g of the sugar. Immerse the cumquats in the syrup, continue boiling for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat, cover and set aside overnight. Repeat this process a further two times over two more nights, adding 200 g of the sugar to the syrup each time. Let the cumquats steep for a week. Remove from the liquid and enjoy!
