Vanilla & Honey Kumquat Marmalade

The kumquat season is in full swing and I couldn’t let it pass without making up a little something that would brighten our days, especially since it might rain later this week. What better than a little marmalade to go with toast for breakfast, or a bit for some pound cake, or a dollop on some vanilla ice cream. Oh the options!

Vanilla & Honey Kumquat Marmalade

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of kumquats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp vanilla

Preparations:

  1. Wash, cut, and remove seeds from kumquats and then slice into small pieces.
  2. Add the kumquats, honey, vanilla, and water to a pot over medium heat and stir to incorporate. Cover for 4 or 5 minutes, or until the skins start turning translucent. Remove the lid and let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated and the remaining liquid is thick.
  3. Let cool and place in a jar. Store in the fridge and see how long it lasts…I doubt it will make it a week.

Cheers-

Susan
