    Leggy Peggy's Note:

    I first heard of kumquats when I moved to Australia in 1982 -- and then I discovered that my neighbours had an abundant supply. Fruit shouldn't go to waste, so I adapted this recipe from 'The Complete Book of Fruit' by Leslie Johns and Violet Stevenson. I have successfully doubled and tripled this recipe, but you will probably need to cook it longer to reach the jelling point. Time does not include overnight standing.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 36

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Slice the kumquats and put them in the water (in a pan that can be used on the stovetop). Let this stand overnight.
    2. 2
      The next day, put the pan on the stovetop and boil the fruit until it is tender. Then pour the fruit mixture into a bowl and let stand for another night.
    3. 3
      On the third day, transfer the fruit/water mixture to a cooking pot and add 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Add brandy if used. Boil this mixture until it jells (about 45 minutes).
    4. 4
      Pour into warm, sterilised jars and seal. Or use a processing method you prefer.

      I am very impressed with this recipe. I've made jam for years, but never tried marmalade, and I love it. This was so simple and it is so delicious--even without the brandy which I did not have on hand. Thanks so much, Leggy Peggy, for posting it and giving me a new favorite.
