What would you do with some leftover Kumquat?How to make Kumquat Jam Kumquat Jam

Directions:

Soak and wash Kumquats with ½ teaspoon sea salt in a bowl

Cut each Kumquat in half and then take all seeds out

Blend all Kumquats in a blender until smooth

Pour back Kumquat mixture into a cooking pot. Add half cup of brown sugar, stir around and cook the mixture at medium heat (about 10 minutes)

After 10 minutes, you will see it starts bubbling up, turn the heat down to low and continue cooking for another 15 minutes. Constantly stir the Kumquat mixture during cooking time to avoid burn around the edge and at the bottom

Wait for all sugar melt and blend well with Kumquats, the mixture will get thicker and a bit sticky.  At this time add 2 teaspoon of lemon into the mixture to give sour flavor into Kumquat jam (I just add lemon because I find it taste better with sweet and sour flavors, but you can skip this step if you prefer only sweet taste.)

Stir lemon juice and cook for 5 more minutes before turn heat off.
