14 Jars of the most delicious golden goodness……….
Recipe – Simple
2kgs of cumquats, sugar.
Halve the cumquats, remove pips, then cut again into quarters. Reserve pips and tie in a piece of clean muslin. Barely cover fruit with water and soak overnight. Next day measure fruit and water in cups. Cook fruit until soft, then add as many cups of sugar as there were cups of fruit and water. Boil vigorously for about 25 – 30 mins until reaches setting point. Rest the marmalade for 10 mins, then stir to distribute the peel and bottle into hot sterile jars. Cover while hot.
Don’t worry about the calories – eat on liberally buttered toast and enjoy a delicious breakfast treat!
