Kumquat Marmalade

Joey Urey


I enjoy making jams and jellies! Wonderful "on hand" gifts for any occasion!

Needs to sit over 2 nights! Takes 3 days to complete but it is well worth it!

The flavor is different from that of any orange marmalade.

How to Make Kumquat Marmalade


  • 1Day One - cover the kumquats and lemon with the cold water and let stand for 24 hours
  • 2Day two - place in a non-reactive saucepan, bring to a boil, add the sugar, then remove from the heat and stir until sugar dissolves
  • 3Let stand again for 24 hours
  • 4Day Three - once more bring to a boil using medium high (if you use high it might burn - just sayin that's my luck). Cook rapidly for 30 minutes or until 2 drops run off the edge of a metal spoon simultaneously
  • 5If there is any foam on the surface, skim off before pouring into hot sterile jars. Seal tightly and store in refrigerator.
  • 6Jelly thermometer should read 218-220 I don't recall storing in the fridge. I use the 5 minute inversion method for sealing my jellies
