Sweet Kumquats
Method

We’d like to thank our friend Mary Pappa for her wonderful recipe!!

  • Pierce each kumquat with a toothpick.
  • Fill a pot full with water and bring to a boil.
  • Add the kumquats and boil for about 10 minutes.
  • When ready, drain and add fresh water to the pot again.
  • Bring to a boil and drain immediately.
  • Fill pot again with fresh water, bring to a boil and drain.
  • The boiling and draining process has to be done 3 times total, allowing the kumquats to boil for 10 minutes only the first time. The second and third simply bring to a boil and drain.
  • When ready, allow them to drain in a strainer.
  • In a pot, add the water and sugar.
  • Bring to a boil and whisk until the sugar melts completely.
  • Add the kumquats and simmer for about 15 minutes. Skim the froth that rises to surface while cooking.
  • Remove from heat and set the pot aside for 24 hours.
  • The following day, (after 24 hours) add the lemon juice and ginger leaves. Gently stir.
  • Place back on heat and boil for 5-10 minutes, until the syrup thickens.
  • When ready, allow to cool and serve.
