After receiving another gift of perfectly ripe kumquats, I decided to concoct a recipe that would preserve them but keep their fresh, delicious flavor intact. This recipe is an easy marmalade and only uses a few ingredients.
This mixed citrus liqueur is a greatest hits mix tape of winter citrusy goodness! Cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and allspice add a gentle kiss of spice. Mix it up on Monday, enjoy it by Friday! It's great to sip on the rocks, or shaken into a martini!
The sweetness of kumquat peel mixed with the tartness of its juice makes for a wonderfully tangy jam, while bitterness takes a back seat. This simple marmalade recipe doesn’t require days of soaking, boiling & straining like many versions.
This tasty winter treat is made from my neighbors' kumquats and some maple syrup gifted to me by a friend from up north. The flavors are delicious together and make a great marmalade for toast or to put with cheeses!
