I LOVE this recipe, it’s so easy! You’ll have to taste as you go, make sure you don’t dump the sugar in all at once or you can end up with a super sweet marmalade.


Kumquat Marmalade

(Adapted from Recipe Girl)

Printer Friendly Version

1 pound kumquats (more or less)

1 medium orange, peeled- white pith removed, and chopped

1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar (more or less)

1/2 medium (2 Tablespoons) lemon, squeezed

Rinse kumquats and remove any stems. Slice the ends off of each kumquat & discard.

Cut each kumquat in half and carefully cut out white pith and seeds; discard.

Chop halved kumquats & pulp coarsely; place into a food processor along with the chopped orange. Pulse until kumquats are chopped more finely and somewhat liquefied.


Measure the mixture at this point and pour it into a bowl. Add equal amounts of sugar to the kumquat mixture (ie. 2 cups of kumquat mixture will need 2 cups of sugar). Mix in sugar and add 2 Tablespoons lemon juice.


Microwave on high (uncovered) for 6 minutes, giving the mixture a chance to boil.

Stir, and continue to microwave in 2 minute bursts (stirring after each burst) for a total of 10 minutes.

Remove from microwave, stir and let cool at room temperature. The marmalade will thicken as it cools.


Keep marmalade in an airtight container; refrigerate for up to 2 months. Freeze for up to 6 months.
