● 1 kg kumquats
● 1 kg sugar
● 1 cup water
● 1 cinnamon stick
● 1/2 lemon
Wash the kumquats well in cold water.
Boil for 10 minutes and then strain.
Repeat the same thing 2 more times.
Slice the kumquats in half and remove the seeds.
Next, cut half the kumquats into small pieces and puree the other half in the blender.
Put the water and sugar in a pot and boil for 10 minutes and then add the kumquats, the cinnamon stick and half the lemon.
Boil all together until the jam has thickened, about 40-45 minutes.
Once it has cooled, remove the lemon and the cinnamon stick and store in sterilized jars.
