Kumquat Lemon Ginger Marmalade
If you’ve never had kumquats they are basically little citrus candies that can be eaten straight off the tree. Yes, even the peel.
After a large harvest I decided to make this quick marmalade. So here’s what you need to make it:
1️⃣ 2 cups of roughly chopped kumquats
2️⃣ Juice of 1 lemon
3️⃣ 1/2 cup agave (sub honey or sugar)
4️⃣ 1/2 cup water
5️⃣ 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger •
➡️ Cut kumquats in half to remove seeds then give them a rough chop
➡️ Add juice of lemon & kumquats to a small saucepan over medium heat & bring to a slight boil
➡️ Add agave, water, & grated ginger to sauce pot & stir. Lower heat & cover pot. Leave for about 20 minutes
➡️ Uncover & stir- taste & add more sweetener if needed. The longer you leave on the stove the thicker the marmalade will get.
➡️ Remove from store & let cool. Transfer to airtight container & keep in the refrigerator
