2 Cups Kumquats - chopped and cleaned
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Ginger Powder or 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
1 Whole Cinnamon Stick
1/2 Tsp Salt
In a large pot, add chopped kumquats, water, juice, sugar, spices.
Mix everything and marinate for 15 minutes.
Place the same pot on high flames till the first boil comes.
Stir on high flames for 5 minutes and then reduce the flame and cover cook for 30 minutes.
Stir every 5 minutes.
After 30 minutes, the marmalade mix would have thickened a little and it will coat the back of the spoon evenly.
Turn off the heat.
You can remove the cinnamon stick and cloves (as per choice).
Let the marmalade cool and it will thicken up as it cools.
Pour into sterilized bottle/jar and keep in a fridge for later use.
Slather evenly on toast / cheese or fruits and enjoy.
